This paper describes the DRS enhancements in vSphere 6.7, which include new initial placement, host maintenance mode enhancements, DRS support for non-volatile memory (NVM), and enhanced resource pool reservations. This paper shows the performance of PMEM on vSphere 6.7: We explain how PMEM can be configured and used in a vSphere environment. We describe our experimental setup and various PMEM configurations used. We show how... Both traditional on-premises virtualized private clouds and the new VMware Cloud on AWS provide users the benefits of server consolidation, manageability, and flexibility that VMware brings to the table. To gauge the ... This paper describes new performance enhancements and features included in vSphere 6.7, all in one place. Also included on this page is the "What's New in Performance in vSphere 6.5?" Our experience troubleshooting a large number of IP storage issues has shown that the ability to capture and analyze packet traces in an ESX IP storage environment can significantly reduce the mean time to resolution ... VMware vSphere 6.5 continues to increase the maximum sizes supported for both physical hosts (576 logical CPUs and 12TB of RAM) and virtual machines (128 virtual CPUs and 6TB of RAM). In this paper, an online transact... In this paper, we explore the performance characteristics of a large enterprise web application running in Docker containers deployed in VMware vSphere 6.5 virtual machines (VMs). The paper includes: Performance metr... Hello According to the user guide, if I want to submit the result to VMware and list on the VMmark result website I need to create a Name-Mapping file before submission. Do I need to type the .vmx path one by one by ... Storage Policy-Based Management (SPBM) is a storage policy framework that helps administrators match VM workload requirements against storage capabilities. SPBM runs as an independent service in the vCenter Server. &... Note: This paper has been updated for vSphere 6.5. The version for 6.0 is attached, below, as well. Best practices are described for optimizing Big Data applications running on VMware vSphere. Hardware, softwa... We tested the performance of "monster" virtual machines running Oracle databases. We ran tests across a range of server generations to illustrate how much performance has increased with each new generation of processo... Introduction VMware recently published a paper titled Scalable Storage Performance that delivered a wealth of information on storage with respect to the ESX Server architecture. This paper contains details... User guide for VMware IOInsight v1.1.1 IOInsight v1.1.1 [April 12, 2017] Added option to download logs for troubleshooting Removed 'Send Logs' option as we were not receiving mails from external networks due to mailserver issue Fixed support for ES... VMware performance engineers thoroughly tested VCHA with a benchmark that simulates common vCenter Server activities in both regular and worst case scenarios. The result is solid data and a comprehensive performance c... In this paper, we cover the basic concepts of reservation and shares in a DRS cluster with resource pools, and explore the implications of setting reservations and shares for a VM and for a resource pool. VMware vSphere virtual machine encryption (VM encryption) is a feature introduced in vSphere 6.5 to enable the encryption of virtual machines. VM encryption provides security to VMDK data by encrypting I/Os from a vir... This paper shows the advantages of using Storage I/O Control (SIOC) to manage shared storage using SSD. The study shows that administrators can set the performance expectation of VMs in terms of IOPS using explicit nu... This paper describes: vSphere 6.5 Encrypted vMotion technology and architecture How to configure Encrypted vMotion from the vSphere Client Performance implications of encrypting vMotion traffic using real-life work... vSphere 6.5 paper This paper is similar to the vSphere 6.0 paper, below, but shows the performance for new features in vSphere 6.5. DRS is now more efficient and faster, and when used with VMware vRealize Oper... In the vSphere 6.5 release, vCenter Update Manager (aka VUM) has been integrated into the vCenter Server appliance (VCSA) for the Linux platform. The integration eliminates remote data transfers between VUM and VCSA w... This paper explores vSphere 6.0 U2 storage performance improvements of 32GFC over 16GFC. Iometer is used as the micro-benchmark to generate I/O and measure performance. Table of Contents Section 1. Introduction Section 2. CPU Section 2.1 Worlds and Groups Section 2.2 PCPUs Section 2.3 Global Statistics Section 2.4 World Statistics Section 3. Memory Section 3.1 Machine Memory a... This white paper gives a brief description of the vSphere 6 FT architecture and discusses the performance implication of this feature with data from a wide variety of workloads.
