Creating a virtual machine (VM) instance with GPU will take more time than creating a VM without GPU, the gap depends on many factors, eg. System configuration, RAM size of VM, type of GPU and the count of GPU cards, from several seconds to serval minutes. It impacts user experience, and in some situation it becomes unacceptable. In this session, Liang will first introduce the factors affect the creation time of a VM with GPU, and then elaborate some issues in QEMU and linux kernel. In the end, Liang will show the solutions for these issues in detail and their achievement for the optimization.
