Virtualization technology is widely used in modern cloud computing environments to implement resource sharing. However, it incurs performance overheads due to an additional hypervisor layer placed between virtual machines (VMs) and hardware resources. To understand the performance of virtual machine systems is crucial for running applications efficiently in VMs and important for further improvement of VM techniques. Existing benchmarking methods are not sufficient for comprehensively revealing the virtualization performance. In this paper, we propose a solution to fully evaluate the performance of virtual machine systems. We first discuss a three-layer benchmarking methodology, and then present a new benchmark suite--Virt-B to measure various virtualization scenarios. After that we introduce a performance testing toolkit to automate the benchmarking process. Finally, we give three case studies.
