Subjectkernel Unaligned AIO/DIO on inode EXT4-fs Unaligned AIO/DIO on inode by VirtualBox; performance will be poor.
From
Hi all,
Sorry for the Newb question but I can't find much clarification of
what this means via google search. Having seen that it's a generic
kernel error message which just happens to be caused by Virtualbox, I
do not think that Virtualbox is the culprit ?

Anything I can do to stop this message ?, a change in virtual disk
file from vmdk to VDI or ...something ?

regards
Simon McNair
