NetApp released Virtual Storage Console (VSC) 6.1 for vCenter 6.0. The solution is only support vSphere Web Client now. I did some testing on my lab, faced a very special case.
vRealize Operation Manager 6 (aka vROps) is new generation of vCenter Operation Manager. I started to use vCenter Operation Manager since version 1.0. I like the idea of self-learning and dynamic threshold. But the product only monitors virtualization layer. It would be perfect if it’s able to monitor under layer storage. In large vSphere environment, virtual machines share IO capacity of datastores. If few virtual machines running high disk IO it may lead to other virtual machines get performance degrading in same storage. Think about you have 100 datastores come from a NetApp filer, and 300 virtual machines running on its. One user says their virtual machine is slow but no workload from applications end. It hard to say where the latency comes from because multiple virtual machines may share same datastore, multiple LUNs share same aggregate, and maybe same physical disks. vCenter Operation Manager provided NetApp Adapter for 5.x few years ago. But the problem was it’s too hard to associate storage objects with vSphere datastore objects.
First of all, this article is nothing related to PowerCLI. You probably know how to set Path Selection Policy (PSP) by vSphere Client, but how you can set up 100 LUNs manually? We have some script can make your life easy.
It’s frustration to check RDM information, you have to check across all ESXi hosts to make sure configuration is aligned. I just figured out two line commands to get path selection policy (aka PSP).
I just found an article show how to check alignment of Windows virtual machine and datastore.
刚找到一篇关于 如何查看Windows虚拟机和ESXi datastore是否和存储扇区一致 的文章。
