Vagrant::Faster

Gem Version Build Status

Tired of Vagrant VMs running slow? This plugin automatically allocates more Memory/CPU based on your machine's capacity.

To install:

vagrant plugin install vagrant-faster

And that's it. All VMs started from now will be made faster.

How much does it allocate?

  • 1/4th of memory, if you have more than 2GB RAM
  • 1/2 of the available CPU cores, if you have more than 1 CPU.
  • For machines with less than 2GB RAM or single-CPU, it will simply leave the machine defaults as it is

NOTE: These were rudimentary values I picked based on usage. Please feel free to suggest better.

Known Issues

  • Presently supports only VirtualBox
  • No option to disable this for specific VMs for now.

Please open an issue if you feel any of this are nagging you.
