# Study of cache behaviour of algorithms on Virtualbox

I want to study certain cache oblivious algorithms and cache behaviour of some other algorithms I wrote in general.

I want to understand, is it advisable, if I do this study in an virtualized environment like in Virtualbox?

What differences should I expect between real environment and virtualized environments?

What are there any tweaks (if any possible) I should do in virtualized environment to get more accurate results?
