Change the default to Virtio

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Just wonder how can change the default value for disk drivers and network drivers to Virtio on KVM. because there is a huge difference in performance. I meant they be chosen by default on VPS creation.

 

thanks

They already have a similar option implemented when adding a KVM template. Make sure to select 'virtio' instead of 'ide' on the Disk Driver option.

 

Unfortunately this will only work for the KVM templates and not ISO's :(

 

Also, it appears to only work for Linux templates, i have not been able to get 'virtio' enabled with Windows 2008. Although I am getting around 37 - 40 MB/s for Disk I/O which isn't to to bad.

It will work with ISOs too but you have to change the setting AND reboot it for the change to take effect.

 

I start by creating the KVM VM - solus will build it and start it.

 

I shut it down, change the setting to virtio and then click boot.

 

When it boots the config will get re-written with virtio and you're good to go.
