kernel recommendations: generic to virtual

Posted December 4, 2014 1.9k views

Hi, I’ve two 512mb droplets with virtualmin running several virtual servers, and i’ve noticed a great difference in memory consumption, they’ve different kernels:1 xx-virtual and one xx-generic.
The question: wich kernel do you recommend to ubuntu 12.04 x64?
Must I migrate from vmlinuz-3.8.0-x-generic to vmlinuz-3.2.0-xx-virtual?

I would recommend against downgrading your kernel as newer versions often include security patches over previous versions.
