In this paper we want to evaluate TransferTime, Memory Utilization and CPU Consumingbetween virtual machines in Network by using FTP andHTTP benchmarks. As a virtualization platform forrunning the benchmarks we have used Xen hypervisorin para-virtualization mode. The virtual machinetechnology offers some benefits such as live migration,fault tolerance, security, resource management etc. Theexperiments performed show that virtual machinesabove the hypervisor consume more CPU, memory andhave bigger transfer times than in a non virtualizedenvironment.

INTRODUCTIONVirtual machine technology offers a lot of benefits asshown in previous research,,,,,,, such are live migration,fault tolerance, security, resource management andreduced energy consumption. Some virtual machinetechnologies are based on a software layer calledHypervisor . There are  three main types of virtualization: full virtualization, OS virtualizationand para-virtualization. Para virtualization approachgives more flexibility than others. Based on thisapproach we can use ESX-Server [ 11] or Xen  .Because Xen is free open source and implementsballooning method  we have used this Hypervisor.Anyway, the virtualization technology offers some“black holes”, for example the Hypervisor introducesa slight delay during a transfers from one machine toanother one . Also CPU consumes morefunctionalities in machines which include theHypervisor than those machines without it. Anotherproblem is Physical Memory utilization and dataoverhead during live migration phase. Someresearchers in ,  presented
methods of memory overbooking and compression of thismemory in virtual machine, in order to improvememory utilization and performance of migration.In this paper we analyze Transfer Time, CPUConsuming and Memory Utilization between Virtualmachines and physical machines by using FTP and HTTP requests . All results are presented inrespectively tables.This paper is organized as follows. Section II disscribes the experimental architecture. Section IIIpresents the experimental evaluation. Section IVpresents conclusions and outlines areas of futurework.II.
EXPERIMENTAL ARCHITECTUREThe Figure 1 and Figure 2 we present the basic of experimental architecture. In Figure 1 there are 2computers which are connected with UTP cat 7 cableusing Twisted Pair technique. Communication of twocomputers is Full duplex. Both computers cancommunicate with each other by network fast-ethernet interface 100/1000 Mbit/sec. In eachcomputer we have setup the virtual machineenvironment with Xen 4.1 and CentOS 5.5 as Dom0operating system.
