VMware - Page Sharing
« on: December 06, 2013, 09:45:21 pm »
Hi Guys,

Here is another tip that can improve the VMware disk I/O performance.

Page sharing decreases host memory usage, but consumes system resources, potentially including I/O bandwidth.

You may want to avoid this overhead for guests for which host memory is plentiful and I/O latency is important. To disable page sharing, add the following line to the virtual machine configuration (.vmx) file:

sched.mem.pshare.enable=FALSE option
