On Linode, UML, Xen…

I’ve been experiencing performance issues on fremont.jonmasters.org, due to the combination of low memory, UML and poor IO throughput under swap. For these and other reasons, I’ve decided that my linode account is going away shortly – I’m just completing the tranistion over to dallas.jonmasters.org. Turns out that Xen may not be the way of the future, but it’s damned better than shared UML.

    Hi jcm,

    You mentioned low memory. I’m wondering if it is just the fact that you are running too much for the RAM that you had allocated. Is UML bad or is it just virtual hosting in general?
