Many features were made a standard part of the Kernel, such as support for IPX. Linux supports another driver type: For each virtual disk image supported by Oracle VM VirtualBox, you can determine separately how it should be affected by write operations from a virtual machine and snapshot operations.

All disks in a group share the bandwidth limit, meaning that in the example above the bandwidth of both images combined can never exceed 20 MBps. This format is used when you create a new virtual machine with a new disk.

The second number is the minor version number. On Oracle Solaris hosts, passthrough requires running Oracle VM VirtualBox with real root permissions due to security measures enforced by the host. It is still in common use in high-performance workstations and servers. Today SCSI is still used for connecting hard disks and tape devices, but it has mostly been displaced in commodity hardware. Each such virtual storage device, such as an image file, iSCSI target, or physical hard disk, needs to be connected to the virtual hard disk controller that Oracle VM VirtualBox presents to a virtual machine.

Chapter 6. Virtual Storage

Therefore, you will generally roll your own kernel and include only those drivers you actually need or want; that way you save a little disk space and reduce the time it takes to compile a new kernel. After you have properly handled an interrupt, you will need to write a 1 back to the appropriate bit in CSR0 or CSR4 before sending EOI to you interrupt controller or the interrupt will continue to be signalled.

Therefore, we will discuss only configuration options that affect networking in this section.

If you have some other type of network card—perhaps a D-Link pocket adaptor, for example—the kernel will usually print a line starting with its device name— dl0 in the D-Link example—followed by the type of card detected.

This is because disk images are by default stored in each machine’s own folder. For instance, the first Ethernet card installed will become eth0and the next will be eth1.

The pcn driver supports the following media types: Wumbley Jul 6 ’16 at PPP is actually a suite of protocols used to send network traffic across serial lines. However, you lniux change the default setting.

If you do want to use smaller packet sizes for data sent to specific hosts because, for linhx, the data goes through a SLIP linkyou can do so using the mss option of the route command, which is briefly discussed at the end of this chapter: Instead, when a snapshot is taken, Oracle VM VirtualBox “freezes” the image file and no longer writes to it.

This is discussed in a little more detail in Section 5. To perform these actions, highlight the medium in the Virtual Media Manager.

Medium changes can be prevented by the guest, and Oracle VM VirtualBox reflects that by locking the host drive if appropriate.


As a result, if you have made changes to the machine configuration since taking the snapshot, they are undone. This is what we generally call a physical device.

In other words, the parent becomes read-only. Linux will function quite happily as an IPX router and this support is useful in environments where you have Novell fileservers.

By default, images are in normal mode. After the general option section is complete, the configuration will go on to ask whether you want to include support for various features, such as SCSI drivers or sound cards. At this time, up to eight devices can be connected to the SAS controller.

You must answer this with y to get a kernel capable of networking. Shareable hard disks are a variant of write-through hard disks. Assume you have installed your guest operating system in your VM, and you have taken a snapshot.

This makes them suitable for use by cluster filesystems between VMs and similar applications which are explicitly prepared to access a disk concurrently.
