I am in process of using VMmark benchmark for performance tests, howver ended up with failures.
My setup is configured in a way that VMs cannot ping vCenter's FQDN. But i read that is mandatory for vmmark runs. Is that true? I have not reached that stage yet, but i am assuming a failure can happen later.
Secondly, is there a way to skip some of the tests? For ex, I don't need the vmware tools upgrade test to be run, is there a way to disable the tests?
Finally, a staf ping failure on Windows VMs. A manual *staf <ip> ping ping* fails. I verified both VMs have staf installed and running, not sure why that happens.. Anyways I am still looking at those, but if you have some answers, please let me know..
the staf ping issue is resolved... however would like to about test selection and how to disable tests in VMmark... Thanks again.
Take a look at the current VMmark2 Benchmarking guide. The section titled "Running a Subset of the Workloads (a Partial Tile)" should help you run your environment with fewer workloads.
