Subject RE: [DISCUSS] KVM io throttling
Date Fri, 09 Aug 2013 18:32:42 GMT
There is another issue, there is no way to change io speed from UI for system vm's guest network(nic2)
in basic network model, which will impact all the template downloading in a negatively way.

We'd better don't throttle system vm's io speed by default, or at least give admin the way
to change the io speed.
