To do this you need to log into SolusVM and under the Settings tab, change Disk Driver from ide (default) to virtio.
Additionaly, you can improve I/O performance by using the following commands:
echo 0 > /sys/block/vda/queue/rotational echo 0 > /sys/block/vda/queue/rq_affinity echo noop > /sys/block/vda/queue/scheduler echo "echo 0 > /sys/block/vda/queue/rotational" >> /etc/rc.local echo "echo 0 > /sys/block/vda/queue/rq_affinity" >> /etc/rc.local echo "echo noop > /sys/block/vda/queue/scheduler" >> /etc/rc.local echo 'vm.swappiness=5' >> /etc/sysctl.conf echo 'vm.vfs_cache_pressure=50' >> /etc/sysctl.confand then run
sysctl -pPlease note that in some cases
/sys/block/vda/can also be
/sys/block/sda/. It depends on your OS and installation type (ISO or Template).
One other trick is to mount your partition with noatime. This can be done by opening
vi /etc/fstab... and adding noatime to the options of the / file system, e.g. like this:
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0 # / was on /dev/sda1 during installation UUID=bf175032-898a-4883-a702-ca0ab9e51d1d / ext4 noatime,errors=remount-ro 0 1 # swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation UUID=2d7209ed-b4c1-4bb6-96f2-73d7ba82ca9b none swap sw 0 0 /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0You don't have to reboot the system for the changes to take effect - the following command will do:
mount -o remount /
