Introduction The following table of vCenter (VC) performance counters lists the counters with a description of their purpose. This page has been updated for vSphere 4, so the counter levels will diff... The performance parity between bare-metal and virtualized servers is an accepted fact today. But what about the most demanding applications, such as monster virtual machines running databases and transaction processin... This white paper examines the performance aspects of a Virtual SAN stretched cluster deployment. Specifically, it examines the overhead of synchronously replicating data across two geographical sites by benchmarking a... In order to support virtual machines with strict latency requirements, vSphere 5.5 introduced a new per-VM feature called Latency Sensitivity. Among other optimizations, this feature allows virtual machines to exclusi... VMware vCenter Server 6.0 substantially improves performance over previous vCenter Server versions. This paper demonstrates the improved performance in vCenter Server 6.0 compared to vCenter Server 5.5, and shows that... This paper shows the performance of vCenter Server 6.0 clusters and illustrates the performance improvements over vCenter Server 5.5. This paper also compares the performance of vCenter Server on Windows and the vCent... This document captures in one place all of the performance improvements made for VMware vSphere 6.0. The vSphere ESXi hypervisor provides a high-performance and competitive platform that effectively runs many Tier 1 application workloads in virtual machines. By default, ESXi has been heavily tuned for driving high I/... The Horizon 6 RDSH optimization tool makes some registry changes to optimize the RDSH server VM image to get better performance. Please use this software only if you understand the risks and the implications of modif... In VMware vSphere 6.0, snapshots with VMware Virtual SAN have been completely redesigned. In this paper, we present the performance of Virtual SAN snapshots for two different applications, namely a source tree compila... This white paper investigates how VMware Virtual SAN performs and scales for well understood synthetic workloads, Virtual SAN caching tier designs, and Virtual SAN configuration parameters. The goal is to provide guid... This whitepaper provides a brief summary of View Planner 3.5 new features, which include the support of Horizon 6, RDSH-based desktop session and application publishing, and new workloads for mouse operations and vide... This paper shows the results of a scalability study with the DVD Store workload on Virtual SAN. The database for the DVD Store workload was Microsoft SQL Server. Two cases were examined: The number of nodes in the V... VMware conducted a series of tests to demonstrate the performance and scalability of large virtual machines on vSphere 6 running Oracle Database 12c. Using a transactional workload, it was found that a single large &l... VMware vSphere 6.0 enhances Network I/O Control (NetIOC) to support a number of exciting new features, such as bandwidth reservations. This paper describes tests that demonstrate the performance of these new features ... The vSphere Client exposes several memory performance statistics for users to identify VM memory usage. Some of the important memory performance metrics follow. Each metric name appears under the Measurement c... Large advances have been made in hardware and every level of the software stack since the virtualized Hadoop tests published in April 2013. This paper shows how to take advantage of these advances to achieve maximum p... This paper reviews the performance of all the different physical NIC technologies supported through vSphere 5.5, including: NetQueue RSS SplitRxMode TCP segmentation offload and checksum offload of VXLAN packets ... VMware has supported Intel and AMD's virtualization assist since 2006. Long before then we were using an all-software approach that we call binary translation (BT). With the benefit of years of development... This paper shows the performance of remote sessions (desktops and seamless applications) and the performance of the RDSH virtual machines, paying particular attention to the sizing of the Horizon 6 environment. The pa... This whitepaper discusses the support for hardware accelerated 3D graphics that is available with vSphere 5.5 and Horizon 6 and presents performance and consolidation results for a number of different workloads, rangi... Attached are two VSAN performance testing profiles for the I/O Analyzer appliance. They will be included in future releases of the I/O Analyzer. They can be used with the VMware Virtual SAN POC Guide. ... This performance study demonstrates that VMware vSphere 5.5 provides an excellent platform for virtualized deployments of SAP IQ multiplex servers. Two modes of distributed query processing to share intermediate resul... VMware performance testing shows that Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 on Virtual SAN clusters scales well without affecting much user-perceived application latency as more Exchange users are deployed with added VMware ... Web applications are an integral part of Enterprise and small business IT offerings, and a robust storage backend for these applications is essential. VMware performance labs undertook testing of VMware Virtual SAN&md... Introduction Iometer is an open source tool originally developed by Intel that remains the simplest and best means of generating load on a system for performance analysis. Because of minute fluctuati... Welcome to the largest list of VMware performance links on the Internet. If you find an outdated link or have another to be added, please comment below. Thanks, @vmMarkA Table of Contents ... VMware publishes performance best practices guides for vSphere 4.x and 5.x: VMware vSphere Best Practices Guides The following white papers also include best practices for various topics: Applications Running on vS... VMware’s Performance – Technical Papers •http://www.vmware.com/resources/techresources/cat/91,96 Performance Best Practices •http://www.vmware.com/pdf/Perf_Best_Practices_vSphere4.0.pdf •... We've recently found a bug in our trace post-processing script on I/O Analyzer 1.5.1, where the "-n" option of "sort" command might not sort the time stamps correctly. The solution is to use "-g" option instead. Attac...
