V-BFQ scheduler guarantees low latency and responsiveness for VMs

v-bfq scheduler demo for low latency in virtualized systems

This demonstration is introducing the concept of coordinated scheduling with Virtual-BFQ. V-BFQ is a storage-I/O scheduler developed by Virtual Open Systems with the goal of minimising latency and maintining responsiveness of applications in guest systems, even in conditions where background workloads are affecting the performance of interactive applications. The limitations of current I/O schedulers in virtualized systems are highlighted in this demo, by comparing the CFQ linux scheduler with V-BFQ. The start-up time of a sample application is measured on different stress cases, showing that multiple workloads in the guest and host can drastically increase delay and cause videlo playback stuttering and buffering problems. With V-BFQ, a coordinated scheduling mechanism between the host/guest is enforced, which can dramatically improve these issues.

V-Bfq Scheduler: Low Latency Guarantees And Responsiveness In Virtualized Systems The V-BFQ scheduler developed by Virtual Open Systems aims to preserve low latency in I/O workloads for virtualized systems, specifically in cases where the overall system is stressed both on the host and guest level
