Hi again,

Since I've not heard anything I'm assuming that no metrics exist, right? Would it be appropriate to do a small test? Is anyone interested?

I was thinking of setting up and file-backed and partition-backed domain and running lmbench to do some simple benchmarking -- does this sound appropriate?

I searched the archives and I couldn't find a thread with specific metrics or benchmark results for file-backed VBD vs. raw disk partitions. Does anyone know any good links?
