Keywords: Hypervisor | XEN-PV | XEN-HVM | Open-VZ | CPU

Based on our previous experience we want to compare theperformance between five hypervisors: XEN-PV, XENHVM,Open-VZ,KVM-FV,KVM-PV We have simulated themigration of a virtual machine by using a warning failureapproach. Based on some experiments we have compared CPUConsumption, Memory Utilization, Total Migration Time andDowntime. We have also tested the hypervisor’s performance bychanging the packet’s size from 1500 byte to 32 byte. From thesetests we have concluded that Open-VZ has a bigger CPUConsumption than XEN-PV, but the Total Migration time issmaller than in XEN-PV. XEN-HVM has a worse performancethan XEN-PV, especially regarding to Downtimeparameter.KVM-FV has the worse performance but it canimprove by modifying it, so in this way we use KVM-PV whichhas approximately the same performance with Xen-HVM
