    VSAN benchmark testing and CASSANDRA DB(VCD integration)

    ManivelR Enthusiast

      VSAN benchmark testing:- Im using 6.7 U1.From 6.7 U1,HCI Bench tool can only be used(for example to find out the IOPS)? There is no native tool available as we used  in VSAN 6.6(RVC-Low stress testing -Example)?

      https://www.virtualizationhowto.com/2018/02/configure-hci-bench-for-vmware-vsan-performance-testing/

       

      Right now,some of the VMs are in production.Can we run this HCI Bench tool to find out the IOPS right?

       

      My VCD setup:- 2 VCDs cells are in cluster and 2 VCD DBs(postgress) are in cluster.

      Cassandra DB--->We deployed 2 VMs.IP address is 10.192.4.130 & 10.192.4.131

      Each VM is acting as a standalone

      In 1st VM Yaml file-->Seeds-->VM1 IP & VM2 IP.

      In 2nd VM Yaml file-->Seeds-->VM2 IP & VM1 IP.

      From VCD,we have pointed both the nodes listed below

       

      #opt/vmware/vcloud-director/bin/cell-management-tool cassandra –configure –create-schema –cluster-nodes 10.192.4.130,10.192.4.131 –username cassandra –password cassandra –port 9042 –ttl 15

       

      If any one VM goes down(assume VM 1 is down),it will serve the VCD VM historical/current performance statistics(metrics) from current running node(VM2)? Where the performance metrics will be stored?(example:- When we add additional metrics in to Cassandra DB from VCD cell).Do we have any GUI facility to access the Cassandra DB?

       

      Thank you,
