Abstract

In the virtualization environment, a hypervisor scheduler determines the degree of shared resource occupancy of the virtual machine (VM) according to the degree of CPU processing and it provides a fair CPU processing on virtual machines (VMs). But VMs are experiencing unfair network performance due to the hypervisor scheduler’s policy occupying resources based on CPU processing time. In this paper, we present NIOECM which is a network IO event control technique that controls the network-intensive VM’s network IO event to guarantee a fairness network performance of VMs which have the same resource configuration. The NIOECM performs a network delay processing on the network-intensive VMs which have a high network I/O event set. As a result, the network-intensive VMs which have a low network I/O event set will have more chance to occupy the network resource. In the result of experiments, our approach provides more fairness of network performance and does not give a performance interference on VM which is performing another task.
