[libvirt-users] Network speed between two guests on same host.



Hi,

I've got two hosts. Most of my guests are Windows systems. I'm using LANBench to test network performance.

1) From an physical PC to a guest (it doesn't matter on which host), I get almost 1Gb/s. They are connected through a 1Gb/s swich => very good!

2) From a guest on one host to a guest on the other host => plusminus 1Gb/s => Okay!

3) Between two guests on the same host => plusminus 230Mb/s ???

The guests have network over a bridged interface, so I tried the same test over a NAT interface => The same 230Mb/s...

Is there a way to tweak connection speeds between two guest running on the same host?

Thanks in advance...
