comment ESXi - What could be the cause of high write latency on a local datastore?
What controller are you using? What is the server hardware? What types of disks are in use? Do you have a battery-backed or flash-backed RAID controller in place? If so, what is the cache size and ratio?

More detail is needed on what you're doing. Why is caching needed? Are you compensating for lacking infrastructure? Can you outline the details of the networking interconnects and your application's I/O requirements?

comment HP ILO 3 gives XML syntax errors with hponcfg utility
This seems to be firmware or software-related. I had to do some ugliness to get firmware updated on the hosts in question (ESXi systems). The same XML code works on many systems, but managed to fail on a handful of servers.
