So I was having) seeing terrible IO performance in my VM's running in Virtualbox on FreeBSD. Turns out the solution was simple, just change the device type of the network card and disk to iovirt instead of emulated hardware.

All of a sudden all performance problems went away.


And now I notice that enabling virtio-scsi causes data corruption in the VM. Great.
