    Hi,
    I've got quick question:

    are there any implementation of VIRTIO drivers for FreeBSD?
    I'm trying to mount some home file server and transfers are bad :/
    I'm trying to identify if the bottleneck is net or drive, but I'm afraid that both are the problem.

    there are no virtio drivers. I suggest you ask this on the KVM list.

    One year later... :p

    A Japanese programmer is currently developing virtio drivers (incl. virtio_net, virtio_blk) for FreeBSD.
    If you can read Japanese, see http://d.ballade.jp/blog/2010/12/virtio-on-freeb.html

    Since he says, "I will post this drivers to the freebsd mailing list when they get enough stable.", you'll be able to make use of them before long.
