comment Send interactive zoning commands to Brocade switch
Thanks :) I'm considering that program option, but it's a shame that Brocade makes this so hard.

comment Send interactive zoning commands to Brocade switch
I don't have screen installed on AIX... but reading about it, it certainly seems like something worth fighting to get. In the meantime, though, is there anything in the world of sessions, pipes, and redirection that can get me where I need to be?

comment Why would Linux VM in vSphere ESXi 5.5 show dramatically increased disk i/o latency?
I'm not sure, to be honest. I normally deal with it at a storage controller level, but this is on an internal disk.

Is there any chance this is due to ESX disk caching? Is the disk you're testing optimized for performance or safety? Also, if it's optimized for performance, can you look at the ESX cache utilization while you're testing? This write IO change in throughput looks like writes hitting a cache, and then slowing to the destage speed when it fills up.

I agree that while this is a well written question that presumably has a good answer, this isn't the place for it.
