Hi everybody,

I may have mistaken sending my question here, if so, please let me know.

I would like to get more information about FreeBSD as a guest on VMware
ESXi. I'm having some issues about performance (specially Harddisk I/O).
I'd like to know which custom kernel should I compile and stuff like this.
Right now I'd like to make a customize kernel to run on VMware, but I dunno
exactly which devices I should choose, which ones work best on VMware.

FreeBSD handbook has just a little about this, it's more about parallels
and VirtualBox.

if somebody else could give me a tip, I appreciate a lot that. any help is

thanks in advance,
