Performance impacts of the Spectre and Meltdown patches KB withdrawn?

Jump to solution

What happened to the KB describing the performance impacts of fixes for Spectre and Meltdown? The https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/52337 seems to have been withdrawn? That link gives a page not found error.

For instance, these blogs and KBs both link to 52337:

Numerous other non-VMware websites also link to 52337.

Even the Internet archive Wayback Machine, can't seem to display the page (VMware Knowledge Base ) from Sept 2 2018.

It is like there is some vast conspiracy to remove 52337 from the Internet.

Partial answer to my own question. Reading VMware Knowledge Base and Performance of vSphere 6.7 Scheduling Options suggests that 52337 was replaced by these newer responses from VMware. Keeping 52337 as an active KB, but updated with links to the above sources would be helpful (if confirmed).
