Hello,
while in my activities to accomplish migration of a Windows 2008 R2 VM
(with an Oracle RDBMS inside) from vSphere to oVirt, I'm going to check
performance related things.

Up to now I only ran Windows guests inside my laptops and not inside an
oVirt infrastructure.

Now I successfully migrated this kind of VM to oVirt 4.1.9.
The guest had an LSI logic sas controller. Inside the oVirt host that I
used as proxy (for VMware virt-v2v) I initially didn't have the virtio-win
rpm.
I presume that has been for this reason that the oVirt guest has been
configured with IDE disks...
Can you confirm?

For this test I started with ide, then added a virtio-scsi disk and then
changed also the boot disk to virtio-scsi and all now goes well, with also
ovirt-guest-tools-iso-4.1-3 provided iso used to install qxl and so on...

So far so good.
I found this bugzilla:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1277353

where it seems that

"

For optimum I/O performance it's critical to make sure that Windows
guests use the Hyper-V reference counter feature. QEMU command line
should include

-cpu ...,hv_time

and

-no-hpet

"

Analyzing my command line I see the "-no-hpet" but I dont see the "hv_time"

See below full comand.

Any hints?

Thanks,

Gianluca
