comment Is it possible to measure HBA throughput using Perfmon on Windows Server 2008 R2?
Thanks. I actually just found that myself and feel dumb for even asking.

comment What are the imlications of having different TCP Chimey Offload settings?
@TomO'Connor thanks. i'm just wondering if there is any adverse impact to having it disabled on the adapter but enabled on the OS.

my suspicion is that the windows firewall on the guests may be blocking this in some capacity

Thanks for the focus down from "filesystem" to "driver."

Thanks for your answer. I don't believe that he was suggesting that NTFS had an intentional limit, but that somehow the design was sufficiently old enough that it never really considered rates this high. So yes, I think it's more of a conversation about how filesystems affect performance of underlying hardware. Also, the point you made is well-taken, and I would have to take his word for the fact that he was RDC'd to his server with the storage actually attached in a production-simulated environment.

I didn't think it was intentionally limited, but thought that, perhaps, it was a limitation of the design

well, he said "gigaBYTES per second" so that's what I was working with.

comment Unable to connect to the Logical Disk Manager service
Thank you. That hotfix is not applied so we'll do that during a maintenance window. I don't know if it'll solve every problem, but I'm going to accept this based on the fact that it's the best lead that I have so far.

comment Is it possible to share the same folder name on two separate drives?
That's what I was thinking, but was hoping for a way out of recreating permissions. If I have to do it, then I have to do it.

Right. Apologies. I got all turned around. The folder has no "$" in it but it is listed that way as a clustered resource.

comment Increasing the size available to, or changing location of, /tmp
@Patrick if /tmp is mounted on/linked to /dev/shm then it is extremely relevant. Sorry that my comment was so vague. End of a busy day.

comment Increasing the size available to, or changing location of, /tmp
True. But that's some serious swapping going on if at least ONE of the files in the process is 100GB when uncompressed. "Crashing" is probably "timeout." Full fstab would be extremely helpful.

/dev/shm is still shared memory though.

But swapping would still cause a performance hit, right?

you're absolutely correct

comment Should I put my VCenter Database on a server with other enterprise databases
Thanks for your response. When you say "how your DB is setup and what else it's doing" are you referring to the specific vCenter DB or the server itself? Do you have any recommendations for ensuring optimum user experience (from both the VM perspective and from the perspective of the end-users of the other applications)?
