I'm using VMware server 2. I have tried the Ubuntu 10.04 32 bit and 12.04 32 and 64 bit with the same results.
4gb ram, 2 cores, bridged network (though nat doesn't seem to be any different)
I'm not sure how to tell or test this to provide actual numbers just that it seems way slower than a server should. Or for that matter if it is Ubuntu or VMWare that is causing the problem.
Any suggestions about resolving this?
