My VM (Ubuntu Vagrant VM) is extremely slow. While my Windows co-workers have a maximum of 1 minute page load time, my page load takes up to 8 minutes.
I tried putting log files in non shared folders—no Effect. I tried fiddling with the VirtualBox settings, but I do not know what I am doing there.
It really got worse with the Mavericks Update.
Anyone any ideas?
- MacBookPro 2.53GHz Core2Duo
- 512MB SSD
My VirtualBox (4.2.22) Settings:
- CPU 1 Core
- RAM 2048MB
- Hardware Acceleration enabled (VT-x/AMD-V)
- Nested Packaging enabled
Due to a shared Vagrant file, the Windows user have the same VirtualBox settings.
LATE UPDATE: The Improvements that worked so far
After i had switched Laptops, now i am back to working with a VM on my Mac so i got back to this Topic.
SFTP Sync via IDE instead of SMB or Shared Folders I stopped using shared Folders and instead i let my IDE (PHP Storm) sync the Files to teh VM via SFTP. So i am working in a local directory and the VM get's the files via SFTP Sync. This was a huge Improvement.
