stagnation in the VMs, performance isn't as good as other KVM installations eg. Proxmox. I am trying to find some tuning documentation but non to find. Any help would be appreciated.

What is it with performance you are noticing?

Hi Robert, we are running some relative big servers as a POC with like 16-24 vCPU and 256+ Memory and 512GB+ disk volumes. The installation of the OS goes ok but when it comes to load data into database of the virtual machine everything seems to slow down a whole lot, these loads are handled by Java programs just as a side note.
When we did this in VMware or in Hyper-V we didn't have these issues, and I have seen other KVMs that were running good as well. So I was thinking it could have something to do with the disk images to do, there is nothing to see on the CPU, Memory, Network or the physical discs and I have tried to run vmstat and iostat from within the machines will this issue was seen but not iowaits. I will do some more testing and let you know thank you.
