Loading… Friday, August 14, 2015 unnoticed new features on vSphere 6, I’d like to point out a “kind” of new feature, why I say kind ?!? Well mainly because it has been there before, but only available on appliances vCenter and not on the Windows one. Now it has been improved and is working consistently between both platforms. I’m talking about vCenter Watchdog. What’s vCenter Watchdog ?vCenter Watchdog is a high…Read More

In the Lab: VMware HCIbench Hands On (by…

VMware’s VSAN group recently announced a free storage performance testing tool for Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI), the HCI benchmark or HCIbench . While stressing traditional arrays with I/O or bandwidth tests is fairly well understood, applying synthetic tests to HCI gear requires a careful approach and a steep learning curve. With traditional storage infrastructure you setup your I/O generator of choice with a given workload profile, point it to some LUNs and let it rip. Hyperconverged testing requires a large-scale approach where many VMs (often 10-64) simultaneously apply that workload across multiple vDisks, at the same time… not to mention collecting all of that data when the task finishes. This type of approach is…Read More
