I am using iSCSI to connect to some hard drives on the host from a guest.
Here is my setup:
- Vmware Server 2 on host
- Windows Server 2008 (host and guest)
- StarWind Enterprise iSCSI target on host
- MS iSCSI initiator on the guest
The guest only has one network adaptor - setup in bridged mode from the host.
With this out-of-box configuration I am getting about 10 MB/s. I know the physical disks are capable of at least 50MB/s.
Any tips for better performance?
