Is there a significant increase in latency when accessing an ORDBMS (namely Oracle 11g) residing in the guest VM (from the host), as opposed to natively?
- The development environment will be used to develop both web applications, and J2EE solutions.
- Core i3 CPU
- 6GB RAM
I intend on:
- Using Oracle Virtualbox as the type II hypervisor
- Having all data-tier functionality within the VM (PL/SQL)
- Having all Oracle middleware residing on the host system (i.e. Glassfish, JRockit)
- Having control-tier functionality residing on the host system (Java servlets)
Note: This configuration is only intended for the development system, not the production system.
Surely there will be an increase in latency, but what degree of increase is expected? 15-30ms?
- The development system has 6GB RAM, and a 5400RPM drive
Since I'm working on a variety of projects which require Debian packages, I cannot migrate completely to a RHEL-based VM for development.
To take this to a higher level of abstraction:
Is there a traditionally adopted means for piping output from a given VM (within VirtualBox (as opposed to Xen/KVM)) to the host system?
Is a socket connection between the host, and guest required when you're accessing a VM locally?
