I have a newly installed PC with EndeavourOS where Virtualbox 6.1.14 is installed.
The only box is a W10 1909. The same box was used in the last years on a PC with Ubuntu 16.04.
After switching to EOS I found that the performance of Virtualbox is worse than on Ubuntu. This is really strange, because the new PC is a i3-9100 and the PC before is a i5-3470.
I have checked all logfiles, but I can not see errors or warnings that would guide me to the cause of the problem. Searching the forum did not give me a hint, where I can start my search to troubleshoot this problem.
There is only one 3770K from 2012 (seems better then the new ones) but many 3470 9100.
The difference between i5-3470 and i3-9100T is not big.
And your feeling (I found) is not a recognized unit of measurement.
The former PC is a i5-3470S to be correct. The main performance is not the processor but the hard drive. I can see with system monitor or iotop that it is lower than 5MB/s. The hard drive is the ID-2 in the list above.
(The only box is a W10 1909)
So does this mean you have Windows 10 on the computer with EndeavourOS installed on virtualbox?
The i3-9100 is as @SGS say’s not much different than the i5-3470 other than it’s memory support for DDR4 2400. The memory is faster but the processor difference is negligible. I do see that Gnome is using twice the ram that my Plasma install is using. You do have 16 GB memory but it’s not always how much memory you have but what processes and or services that are running and tying up the cpu. My suggestion would be to try Xfce. Or even Plasma if you are using it in vbox as you can try what ever you like then.
No, vice versa.
I am running EOS with Gnome and W10 is in the VBox.
Thanks for the ideas. Memory is related to the fact, that I have a lot of services running on that PC (DNS, DHCP, LDAP, NFS, Apache, Maria-DB etc.). All those services have been running on the previous PC too.
