It can be complicated, yes.

Making it work optimally by default is, unfortunately, far more complicated. 
However, we are constantly looking for possible optimizations that would work 
in most scenarios (and mostly likely not worsen in the remaining ones). If 
anyone has any ideas regarding this that are not already in the guide, please 
let me know.

Modifying the TCP parameters within the VM can have a large impact --- I guess 
the PV tools could do that automatically?
