Hi,

Tweaking the kernel for performance for hardware/install can be a challenge for experienced users. I suggest that you look at 'KernelNewbies';

Linux Kernel Newbies Kernelnewbies is a community of aspiring Linux kernel developers who work to improve their Kernels and more experienced developers willing to share their knowledge.
Kernelnewbies can be found on the MailingList, IRC (irc.oftc.net #kernelnewbies), the web forum and this wiki.
You might consider looking at your distributions kernel upgrade or procedures.

Thanks for taking your time to drop a note, if the kernel tweaks is not going to do much, please can you point out a few modifications I can made on kernel just to see how it works.

  • which distro?
  • which kernel?
  • how many VMs?
  • details for VMs?
  • what hardware?

no one can give you a quick answer, there are no quick answers

And before you begin, you need to come up with some form of benchmarking to measure effectiveness.

go back to your other thread, pay attention to VMware ESX
it is designed to do what you want
