Well all you can get is the list of running processes (Task Manager). All other tools use the same data. Generally you can track processes and check how much CPU time they require, but: 1) Slow response can have a plethora of reasons 2) The fan spiking has not a lot to do with CPU usage I assume it's not a U series i7 but an M, so this is a pretty ...

You have it backwards. The most important thing is having the same amount of RAM on each channel.

Recording the network traffic data takes some time, which results in a slowdown of the page load. Though normally this slowdown isn't that big. Note that the 20ms you measured only refers to the time needed to generate the page script. It doesn't take all the other requests into account involved into the page load, e.g. CSS, JavaScripts, images, etc. I ...

There is no one single good answer to this. It depends a lot on how you use a VM and on which programs. E.g. using VMWare (a type 2 hypervisor) and a purely CPU bound program yielded almost full CPU speed. If I used the same hypervisor an a program with a lot of system calls I would get a serious slowdown. And things alos change when you use a type 1 ...

For number-crunching programs (very CPU-bound), there should be almost zero performance hit for the VM. The instructions run directly on the CPU, which is the same for host and VM. Even for serious compilation tasks, the performance difference is hardly noticeable. We run CentOS VMs in VMware on Windows. Since you're running Linux on the host, you might ...
