  1. Question about VM performance and RAM configuration.


    My laptop has a 4GB RAM module and a 2GB module, so only 4GB can work in dual channel mode. The system usually uses about 3GB, but when I'm running a VM, it uses around 5GB. Is it likely that this is why my VM is so sluggish?

    (I'm not sure whether this is a RAM question or a virtualization question.)

    Question about VM performance and RAM configuration.

    You only have 6 GB to work with, so it is only natural that your virtual machines are "sluggish".

    Whereas a Linux or Windows XP VM can work quite nicely with just 1 GB virtual RAM, a Windows 7 or later requires much more to really work.

    An extract from a Ten Forums tutorial Hyper-V - Optimizing Virtual Machines:

    In addition, if your virtual disks are held on an HDD then a VM will be 'sluggish' no matter how much RAM is available. Ideally you need an SSD.
