1) Higher resolution. My boss gave me two big monitors that can do
1920x1200, and all I can get for my guest machines is tiny little
windows with hardly any room to work inside.
2) The ability to see what options qemu-kvm was invoked with. Even if
I can't change them, at least I can understand what I am getting.
Right now, it's a black box to me.
Incidentally, the guest machine that I described in the first message
in this thread is using the virt-blk driver, so I wonder if I'm seeing
the same problem as described in the thread on the test slowdowns. I
just checked, and the disk image is sparse, although there seems to be
some doubt that that has anything to do with the problem.
