Virtual Machine Benchmarking

Virtual Machine Benchmarking
Subject:Virtual Machines
Type:Diploma Thesis

Prof. Dr. Frank Bellosa, Joshua LeVasseur

Graduand:Kim-Thomas Moeller


The resurgence of system virtualization has provoked diverse virtualization techniques targeting different application workloads and requirements. However, a methodology to compare the performance of virtualization techniques at fine granularity has not yet been introduced. VMbench is a novel benchmarking suite that focusses on virtual machine environments. By applying the pre-virtualization approach for hypervisor interoperability, VMbench achieves hypervisor-neutral instrumentation of virtual machines at the instruction level. Measurements of different virtual machine configurations demonstrate how VMbench helps rate and predict virtual machine performance.
