  1. Well... I regret to say this but... without *ANY* tweaks at all, and with 8 less cores allocated to the Windows 10 VM (16 host cores, no pinning, no isolation etc) - it travels at WARP 12. The same config under unRAID yielded terrible performance... Hopefully unRAID will catch up *soon*. Now, onto the tweaks.
  2. Well there seems to be some weird issues with unRAID ... I was expecting a "multitasking monster" Windows 10 VM on a Threadripper 3960x 32G ram, nv 1070 gpu, 1TB nvme... nomatter what I did --- it couldn't stand up to a 2015 laptop (core i7 4c4t). As soon as I start something that uses a lot of ram (6-8 GB) everything slows down. DPC rises... Tried everything I could think of w/o much (if any) success. The old laptop just blows the VM away like a sports car. Not sure what the problem is... I'll try to run PVE and see if it's the same there.
  3. Tried everything I could think of - performance was s**t, comparing to a 2015 laptop (4core2thread) ... the laptop was rocking it, the VM - not so much. Decided to postpone the VM setup for now. Will try again in 6 months.
  4. For some reason I actually got better performance without CPU isolation. Still testing.
  5. Yeah but won't i440fx have issues with passed-through NICs / GPUs ?
  6. That's how I started. No interface detected - install complete -> usb flash copied the patch, ran the commands exactly -> patched -> compiled -> reboot -> no networking. Are you sure you are doing this on 12.1-RELEASE, and not on 12.0 or something else ?
  7. There was already the same <interface> in the config, I've added the "alias" from your config - still no network adapter. Are you doing this on a 12.1-RELEASE, or on other? When installing it won't see the virtio network adapter even if I select configure ipv4 and configure dhcp - it says "no network adapter". Here's the current config: <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?> <domain type='kvm' id='4'> <name>FreeBSD 12.1 DEV</name> <uuid>adece69a-e678-9280-0e59-988c2d78d910</uuid> <metadata> <vmtemplate xmlns="unr
  8. During the install - it doesn't detect the network interface, so I continue the install without it. Compiled kernel with 2 patches - rebooted - no network (I'm not passing PCIe NICs, I'm trying to get the br0/vmbr0 working). Here's the output of pciconf -lv:
  9. Q35 4.2 OVMF - managed to install with a GPU attached. Patched & compiled the kernel with device netmap disabled, rebooted - still no network through br0 or virbr0 - no network device detected at all. Compiling with the 2nd patch added (netmap still disabled) - no network. Compiling with netmap enabled + both patches -> compiled fine, still no vmbr0 / br0 networking devices detected.
  10. Here's how I install FreeBSD on PVE: @jonp It finds the VirtIO disk, finds the VirtIO network. Not much else I can say about this... It just works. And here's the config of the VM I just installed: root@vh1:~# cat /etc/pve/nodes/vh2/qemu-server/107.conf bios: ovmf bootdisk: virtio0 cores: 4 cpu: host efidisk0: zfspool_1:vm-107-disk-0,size=1M ide2: local:iso/FreeBSD-12.1-RELEASE-amd64-disc1.iso,media=cdrom machine: q35 memory: 1024 name: TESTBSD net0: virtio=52:1E:B0:FC:4E:14,bridge=vmbr0,firewall=1 numa: 0 ostype: other scsihw:
  11. It has a gui the same way unRAID has a gui. I did show you a config of a FreeBSD VM running on pve. You can just install PVE somewhere and run a VM and test this yourself. I can take you through the process but I can tell you right now - I ran a FreeBSD VM from the first try, from the first time I used PVE. Just select Q35, everything else is.... well.. self-explanatory.
  12. @jonp So... the big question - why was unRAID affected and PVE - unaffected? I spent few hours today scrolling through kernel / qemu kvm changes - I couldn't see a single thing related to bsd. Perhaps I'm wrong... Still, it's worth checking.
  13. I won't argue with you, I just wish to see unRAID being able to handle all the major OSes @ VM, and not just because I need FreeBSD As for the FreeBSD use, I think most of its use is on bare-metal, not VM.
