comment Disk is a bottleneck. Background processes make things worse. How to improve responsiveness?
YMMV: We did try to play around with swappiness unsuccessfully. We tried all kind of values, graphed stuff and didn't get anywhere. We eventually ended writing up a daemon that would evict the pages of certain misbehaving programs every few seconds from the page cache.

You could try instantiate a simple vm with virtio on. Or maybe edit the config for your existing vm and see.

comment In Debian 6, how to start a daemon as a different user?
I can see in my rc.d that the debian daemon starter can accept users `grep -nire start-stop-daemon /etc/init.d/ /etc/init.d/xpilot-ng-server:35: start-stop-daemon --start --quiet --chuid $USER --background `
