vCenter Update Manager Performance and Best Practices

Version 1

    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 while greatly simplifying the VUM deployment process. We also present the performance and deployment differences between VUM for Windows and VCSA.

     

    This paper covers the following topics:

    • Experimental setup for performance tests
    • Various VUM deployment scenarios
    • Operational performance for VUM workflows
    • Resource consumption
    • Running VUM tasks with workload
