Riassunto analitico
In this thesis we are going to present VirtualBox hypervisor, giving some details about its architecture and analyzing network performances of the existing solution. We then implement an extension that interfaces the hypervisor with netmap framework, which provides fast packet I/O. Finally, we present some optimizations to an emulated network device (e1000 in our case), that considerably improve network performances.
