I am running two VirtualBox VMs on a host laptop. All parties are running 32-bit Ubunutu 15.10.
The host has 1.9 GB RAM to share between itself and its guests and a Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T9300 @ 2.50 GHz x 2 as a processor.
Needless to say I'm stretched pretty thin. Currently I'm allocating 512 MB RAM for each VM, reserving the rest for the host. The goal is to set one VM as a
squid3 proxy server and the other as a client and pass small messages across. The VMs run very slow. It'd be great to better optimize them!
What would be the best utilization of resources? Are there any more lightweight ubuntu flavors that I can use in VirtualBox that play nice with
