Many times do not know that they bought the VPS is the kind of virtualization technology, afraid to the business of the flicker, below to introduce how simple to judge their own VPS virtualization technology. 1. Make sure that the Ll/proc/ps:/proc directory has a Xen directory below it through the relevant directory or file on the system. The OpenVZ will have a vz directory. This method can only be seen with Xen and VZ, and is of little use to KVM and Vmwart. 2. Installing virt-whatyum-y install Virt-what or wget http://people.redhat.com/~rjones/virt-what/files/ Virt-what-1.15.tar.gztar zxf virt-what-1.15.tar.gz && cd virt-what-1.15./configuremake && make install After installation, enter virt-what on the terminal to determine the virtual technology used by the current VPS. You can see that my virtualization of this AWS is Xen.
