I've just did some _very_ simple disk benchmarks using fio on both Linux and FreeBSD using a 1GB ramdisk as the backend: 'phy:/dev/ram0,hdd,w' This was added to the guests, both have 1GB of RAM and 8vcpus. Then I've used the following fio workload: [global] rw=write # or read for the read tests size=900m bs=32k direct=1 # tested both 0 and 1 [job1] FreeBSD was able to deliver >30000iops in all cases, and the throughput was around 1000MB/s for all test cases also. On the other hand, Linux was only able to deliver around 10000iops, with a throughput of ~400MB/s. This was tested using xen-unstable and a Linux v3.15 Dom0. Could you try to run this benchmark on both your FreeBSD and Linux guests? Please make sure guests are set to use the same amount of RAM/CPUs.
