In the ploop the reading speed dramatically slow down.
In 2-4 times, depended with vhd space.
Containers don't have IO limitations.
How to resolve it?

Too many undefined variables:
- what is the ploop state before experiment?
* it may be fresh - so you read the data that was never written - and it requires additional actions to allocate blocks (ploop - is an expandable format!)
* it may be old - then it may be significantly fragmented and random io is slower than the sequential one
- do you measure on the same node?
- what is the system? Kernel version?


Just ad hoc ideas.

Anyway - reading data which was not written by you (test) in advance - is a bad idea for testing.

Suggest following sequence:
# xfs_io -c "pwrite 0 1G -S 0xa -b 1M" -df filename
# xfs_io -c "pread 0 1G -b 1M" -df filename


If you problem is solved - please, report it!
It's even more important than reporting the problem itself...

ploops are near month old.
Used latest OpenVZ7 OS v7.0.5. Ext4 by default. All placed on one SSD NVMe, same server, node, etc. but different sizes.


Is any same tool for Ext4 for tests?

xfs_io is a generic tool, it can be used for any fs checking.
