This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.
They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own. Click Here to receive this Complete Guide absolutely free. Hello, I installed Kali linux v 1.
One possible reason is swappiness You can check swappiness on your machine. You can Google ways to create one Originally Posted by JaseP. What did you set swappiness to? What is the output of "uptime" just interested in the load average and "free -m"?

HDDs are notoriously slow as well. Once the data gets cached it shouldn't be too bad, but the first time you run anything it might take a few seconds to fetch all of the necessary data from the drive. You could also have a dying drive, what is the output of "smartctl -a" for your system drive?
Last edited by suicidaleggroll; at AM. You need to give smartctl a drive. Eg: Code:. Maybe you could be more specific about what runs slow. Do ALL commands run slow or just some? When you run top, does it take many seconds to start up?
Is it maybe just network or database operations that are slow? And perhaps quantify just how slow some repeatably slow command is.
How to Install and Setup Kali Linux 2020.1b in Hyper-V on Windows Operating System

So, they are not compatible with each other. What I mean is you can run either of these software but not both. Most of Ethical Hacking tutorials will guide you to setup the lab environment using VirtualBox since this is an open source virtualization software available for all major platforms such as Microsoft Windows, Apple Macintosh and Linux totally free of cost.
Since Hyper-V and VirtualBox both cannot work at the same time, you would most probably want to stick with Hyper-V for setting up your Ethical Hacking lab environment. This article will help you in such scenario. In this test lab, we will setup two virtual machines.
The first one will be the attacker machine kali linux and the second one will be victim machine metasploitable2. If you have not already enabled Hyper-V, just enable it via single command. Just open an elevated Windows PowerShell console and enter the following command:.
This will take a while and install all features related to Hyper-V. Restart your computer if prompted. The first step is to create an Internal virtual switch. This switch will not be connected to a physical NIC of the host. At the end, the virtual machines connected to the internal virtual switch will be able to talk to the host OS, but cannot talk to the external network the host OS is connected to.
Open an elevated Windows PowerShell console and enter the following command:. The last step is to configure the network address of the NAT network that will run on the virtual switch. This essentially is the private address range used by the virtual machines connected to virtual switch. Make sure that the IPv4 address in the previous step must be in this range. This is it. Any virtual machine that connects to virtual switch will use an IPv4 address in the If you want DHCP service so that all virtual machines connected to this virtual switch automatically obtains the IP configuration, then you must build a DHCP server virtual machine and connect it to the same virtual switch.Been a long time lurker, and thought today's the day to sign up and seek for help more actively and try to help in return.
So far, so good, it worked nicely, and yesterday I ran into some login-issues on the VM:. I was also able to enter the password through onscreen keyboard but now any way I try it, I am always getting the error that the login doesn't work. Did anyone of you ever have the same issue? My last resort would be to reinstall the complete VM and start from scratch, tbh it would have already been faster than trying to fix it but I honestly want to find out if it's an error in the virtualization or my kali just died somehow.
Kali is designed to be used remotely. As for the pen-test and vuln-testing, be careful, it's one thing to press buttons and see what happens, but it's another knowing what the tool does and how to recover from it should something go wrong. There is nothing stupid about wanting to get it working - it could be an integration tools issue, however, think of how oyu access windows devices - most likely RDP and only at the console for troubleshooting - Linux based devices should be used with their remote offerings, whatever that might be where possible.
I prefer the reports from Nessus, but it's a paid product and in my lab, I prefer to use free or open source, the free lab license offered by Nessus only covers 16 IPs so its not suitable for my lab any longer, though there are also things I dislike about OpenVAS. Welcome to Spiceworks and its community. And no, I never had such an issue. And as far as I understood, there is nothing wrong with your VM nor with Kali. It sounds more that you didn't configure your software correctly which you use to connect to your Kali VM.
Which software do you use to connect? Kali can run on lots of devices, Raspberry Pi are good mobile use cases where the device can sit hidden, powered by batteries and still attack, but it can run on VMs and physical boxes too as well as some mobile devices.

Yes lets. Yes make the Hackers or pentesting that much easier Yes if the kahli vm gets pawned its pretty much a giftwraped console. And cypters less you have Cylance or nexgen Av. Get kahli off your vm. Main network etc. Put in a isolated-Security lab please Cypted metasploit fail. Shure itll maker her job more interesting im shure.

This will always be slow, because VMWare will always run much slower than metal. Fred Marshall Principal.One of the most common problems that virtualization administrators encounter is slow virtual machine performance.
Unfortunately, these types of performance problems can be surprisingly difficult to diagnose at least in some cases. In this article series, I want to share with you some real world techniques that I have used to diagnose and correct virtual machine performance problems.
The first thing that you must understand about virtual machine performance troubleshooting is that the word slow is a subjective term. The word slow can mean different things to different people. Is the virtual machine running slower than it would run if it were running on dedicated hardware?
Is it running slower than it was yesterday?
Is it running slower than the that I had back in college? My point is that it is very difficult to address performance problems unless you have a basis of comparison. You might be able to observe that a particular virtual machine is suffering from poor response time, but to truly address the problem you need objective, statistical performance data. Otherwise it may be difficult to tell whether or not your corrective actions are having the desired effect. Before you begin gathering performance data, it is a good idea to take a moment and check the scope of the problem.
If the performance issues are isolated to an individual virtual machine or to a few specific virtual machines then you have got your work cut out for you. In those situations you might be able to correct the performance issue by doing something as simple as moving a couple of virtual machines to a different host.
As previously stated, the best way to diagnose virtual machine performance problems is to have an objective basis of comparison. Generally this means taking performance benchmark readings on the virtual machine whose performance is suffering and on a comparable but healthy virtual machine.
You can then compare the data from the two virtual machines and use it to look for clues as to the source of the problem. Collecting performance benchmark data in a virtual environment is something of an art form. Sure, you need to know which performance counters to check, but there is more to it than that.
The first thing that you need to understand about virtual machine performance monitoring is that the performance data is skewed by the hypervisor.
It only means that the virtual machine is using all of the CPU resources that have been allocated to it.Kygo & Whitney Houston - Higher Love (Official Video)
Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It only takes a minute to sign up. I'm running Ubuntu It is working fine, but video performance is very far from "smooth. I am not satisfied with the graphics performance.
I do not know if i missed out a setting. If anybody finds a good solution i would be happy to know about it too. But this is what i did. I read and followed the information from the Microsoft documentation on TechNet.
There is a table with features of Hyper-V. Most interestingly in this case is the row mentioning "Hyper-V specific video device". But it does not mention anything about Windows Only about Windows Server host systems. However, i followed the instructions and installed:. So it seems to me that something worked out.
Kali Linux on Windows 10 VMWare Workstation is !slow!
But the graphics performance still seems to be poor. I am not sure if it improved maybe a little. Maybe you try it out and tell me if it helps? I get a performance issue only with 64 bits Ubuntu Ubuntu Community Ask! Sign up to join this community.

Best Practices for running Linux on Hyper-V
Hyper-V: Improve Ubuntu Remember Me? Results 1 to 5 of 5. Thread: Kali 2. Join Date Nov Posts 8. Kali 2. The videos which I watch lag considerably. I never had problems with earlier version of Kali. My graphic card is very old about 6 years oldso it isn't surprising that I am facing problems with it. But everything used to run fine with Kali 1. I was wondering if there's a way to use Kali 2.
Is there a way? Join Date Mar Posts If your hardware cannot handle it - switch to XFCE4. You can download it your self via apt-get install xfce4 or download kali-light ISO. I personally use XFCE4. I checked out XFCE4. It looks great. I would love to install it. Please help me install it. When I run apt-get install xfce4I get E: Package 'xfce4' has no installation candidate. What should I do now? I fixed my sources.
