In my previous post, I mentioned the part 3 of the Host Deep Dive session at VMworld 2018. The ‘3’ is because we ran the part 1 and 2 at VMworld 2016 and 2017. We had the chance to try a new way of discussing Host Resources settings by the way of creating levels of performance tuning. The feedback we received will test-driving this session at the London and Indianapolis VMUG, was really positive.
As we always stated, the out-of-the-box experience of VMware vSphere is good enough for 80-90% of common virtual infrastructures. We like to show how you can gradually increase performance and reduce latency with advanced vSphere tuning. That’s why we came up with the Pyramid of Performance Optimization. Delivering the content this way allows for better understanding on when to apply certain optimizations. We will start with the basics and work our way up to settings to squeeze out the maximum performance of vSphere ESXi hosts.
Due to session time constrains, we will focus on compute (CPU and Memory) and virtual Networking. The following pyramids contain the subjects about content we will discuss in our session.
We will go trough all these levels in detail. We very much look forward to VMworld and hope to see you there! Be sure to reserve your seat for this session!
The following VMworld sessions are all based on the Deep Dive series:
- vSphere Clustering Deep Dive, Part 1: vSphere HA and DRS [VIN1249BU]
- vSphere Clustering Deep Dive, Part 2: Quality Control with DRS and Network I/O Control [VIN1735BU]
- vSphere Host Resources Deep Dive: Part 3 [VIN1738BU]
