If one has a FreeBSD system that has 1 gigabyte of RAM and a 1-GHZ processor, would it be possible to run a couple of vmware instances of FreeBSD? I want to set up a DHCP server on each virtual machine and configure one to be optimized for DHCP failover and dynamic leases while the other is dedicated to static bootp service. It would be much easier for the 2 instances of dhcpd to run in separate machines, so to speak, since they normally use the same named files for logging and configuration.
What sort of a performance hit does one usually see on a virtual machine? When we run dhcpd on a normal FreeBSD system of the type described above, the system is normally loaded around 0.05 or so so it isn't having to work too hard. Thanks for any help as to what vmware port is best. The platform is FreeBSD and the 2 virtual machines will also be FreeBSD if that makes any difference. There will be no X windows involved, just hopefully 2 DHCP servers running as if they were on two separate boxes. Any information to point me in the right direction or reasons why this is not a good idea are appreciated. Thank you.
