https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=254513 --- Comment #29 from Chris Collins <firstname.lastname@example.org> --- I just checked the qemu documentation and this is worth noting. "Using RDRAND on the host, if available, as a source of entropy to pass on to the guest via virtio-rng is better than the current /dev/random source." This likely explains why I am seeing virtio rng been less efficient, so on intel chips its probably a good thing anyway to not use virtio rng. Regardless I have made a request to proxmox to raise the default value. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are on the CC list for the bug. You are the assignee for the bug.
