    Shouldn't this be tested inside XEN/qemu?

      The normal Clear Linux installer is designed to run on bare metal hardware and is supported that way. There are other Clear Linux images available for those wanting to deploy via QEMU/KVM, cloud, etc. However, for the purposes of this benchmarking, with looking at the evolving performance of Clear Linux, bare metal is the best approach.

        It would be interesting to benchmark how CENTOS DEBIAN FREEBSD and CLEAR LINUX are running inside vt-x so that we see how this virtualization-distro performs.

        If clear linux is optimised for qemu/kvm and not xen, you should use qemu.

        The optimizations intel made are for inside a virtual machine.
        No one can magically beat debian in bare hardware. If there was something to optimise in debian they would send it at kernel.org

        PS; intel might have also made optimizations in KVM so the os might be a faster host of virtualization

        Setting up qemu is very complicated.

        You can run qemu without gui which is faster. Then use SSH to login to the qemu guest.

        SSH to a guest qemu is very complicated. It's not port 22 anymore.

        Qemu/kvm and Xen are used in the cloud


        I removed the sentence where i said tht clear linux doesn't have X11, sorry i didn't know it had X11

          Setting up qemu is very complicated.

          If you run qemu inside the clear linux you will have to disable the qemu gui because clear linux has no X11. Then use SSH to login to the virtualized machine.

          So i would suggest running the qemu in a distribution that has a gui. SSH to a guest qemu is very complicated. It's not port 22 anymore.

          few factual corrections; Clear Linux does offer an X11 basic UI
          and we're also a bare metal OS in addition to the Clear Containers feature....

            Running qemu without gui will offer better performance because qemu spends cpu time in printing the gui. You can also disable the qemu gpu which is a different setting.

            It is more difficult but better.
