    VSphere / ESXi 6.5 AHCI performance problems with native driver / FIX

    segobi Lurker

      Im having performance problems when using the new VMWare native AHCI-driver on several hosts (Intel Avoton and also Xeon 1225 V3 System (HP Ml310e gen8)).

      Using SSDs on those systems - im not sure if it also affects HDDs.


      Moving back to the legacy vmklinux AHCI-driver fixes the problems.


      See this blog post:

      I hope this gets fixed soon so I can move back to the native drivers
