Virtual machine monitors are becoming popular tools for the deployment of database management
systems and other enterprise software. In this paper, we consider a common resource consolida-
tion scenario in which several database management system instances, each running in a separate
virtual machine, are sharing a common pool of physical computing resources. We address the
problem of optimizing the performance of these database management systems by controlling the
configurations of the virtual machines in which they run. These virtual machine configurations
determine how the shared physical resources will be allocated to the different database system in-
stances. We introduce a virtualization design advisor that uses information about the anticipated
