[dm-devel] Re: [kvm-devel] I/O bandwidth control on KVM



Hi,

Thank you for your suggestion.
I was using virtio drives as you wrote.
I just thought that kvm would use O_DIRECT option when applications on
the guest opened files with O_DIRECT option.
I'll try the way you mentioned and report back.

Thanks,
