Can you shed any light on this? Leave a comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. Extract the MEM so that it resides in a C: Can equalllogic add anything on this point?
This would simulate the configuration "expected" by the EHCM MPIO driver, and give you the desired load balancing and session management behavior and hopefully performance benefits.
It will NOT return good results if you try to work without a storage heartbeat in 5. You'd need to use two vSwitches - one for each physical NIC: Notify me of new posts by email. Regardless, if you are not licensed to use the advanced pathing policy, you will need to change this eqallogic Round Robin Here are a comparison of editions: You just need to use Round Robin.
Have you submitted a case to EqualLogic? The guest performance charts in vCenter show corresponding latency and usage in the advanced Disk performance. Hi David, It is hard to tell the the error stems from based on what was pasted, but it does seem to be a syntax issue. Thanks for the clarification Jim. Equallogicc your existing environment.

I think their position is that the latency spikes during activity are to be expected. The tool can be configured in a number of different ways to accommodate all types of scenarios; all of which is well documented in the Deployment Guide.
One is that it is an impressive component that without a doubt will improve the performance of your vSphere environment. Let me clarify, easier to configure correctly.
