Debian wheezy 7.1 64 as host. Two guest OS’s through Virtualbox - whonix workstation 7 and gateway 7.
in Virtualbox workstation has 954 working memory assigned to it, 128 mb video memory.
Gateway has 324 mb, 8 mb respectively (runs in console mode).
Increasing above is the only tip regarding increasing performance in whonix documentation have, however it’s advised against in virtualbox (for workstation) to increase more
athlon 64x dual core 3800 + x2
The workstation is slow overall. Opening Dolphin file manager takes 8 seconds. Opening more than about 20 tabs in TOR browser have resulted in freezing the OS, which goes away if waiting. It’s only used for browsing through TOR, and sometimes navigating the file system.
BIOS has a setting for virtualization, but it doesn’t apply to this setup (as far as I remember, going to reboot and check the wording again).
Any point to me trying to researching and configuring for performance, or simply HW (I’m guessing CPU) too crappy?
