I am moving several hyper-v VMs from an under-powered host to a newer host with an iSCSI array for storage. What is the best configuration for the iSCSI volume to get the best performance for hyper-v? Should I make one large LUN and then just put all the vhds on that LUN or would multiple smaller LUNs work better with hyper-v?
The host server is a Dell r710 with dual NICs dedicated to iSCSI with the Dell MPIO drivers installed. The MD3000i is using all iSSCI ports through the same physical switch as the r710.
Most of the servers are self contained machines and the disk I/O is not heavy for most of the machines. I do have three development servers that work as build target machines which have higher disk I/O than the other serevrs but the builds are not constantly running.
