as title, I need to tune the i/o scheduler for 4 mechanical disk that are passed through to a vm.

On proxmox host the scheduler for all disk is
none [mq-deadline]

On vm guest the scheduler for all those disk is
[none] mq-deadline kyber bfq

those disks are in a btrfs raid10 setup.

what setup can I try out to find out the best performance?
