We had a similar discussion on some list a while back and I did some
timings. My values were close to the ones others cited for Linux and
others said their NetBSD timings were a lot worse than mine.

I use SATA and NVMe emulations in virtual box, and mount all filesystems
on the emulated SATA drives with "log".

Don't think I had to tweak anything special on the host or in virtual
