Most of the job of a load balancer is done on the network and the system. All the network job is rewritten by virtualization, so is most of the system work (ie. syscall interception = double execution : catch/rewrite, execute + other network overhead). Therefore it is perfectly normal that your performance in a VM is bad.
I advise that you don't use haproxy (or any load balancer) in a VM if
you need any high performance.
This can't be helped, it's about how a VM works.
