Hi, I am running an OS (unraid) that already runs libvirt v.6.5.0 and qemu 5.1.0. My vm´s do run with a solid performance. Virt manager is not implemented.
I did set up a new linux vm to act as the host. I followed the steps in the wiki and everything went fine. But the performance of the whonix workstation is not as solid as my other vm´s. I actually assigned to the linux host 10 cores, 20GB ram and images are located in a nvme. My other vm´s run fine with only 4 cores, 6gb ram and in the same nvme.
I was thinking about creating the whonix gateway and workstation not on the linux vm but directly on my OS. Some cons I guess may be that I will not be on the latest libvirt / qemu or that I must carefully add the virtual networks because other virtual bridges already exist.
But before I go on, I wanted to ask if this is something that can be done or maybe it is not recommended due to some reasons I don´t know yet. Also, maybe someone is using this setup already and can share with me his experience.
