I'm running an ESXi 6.0.0-2494585-standard server. On this server are ~20 virtual machines running (ubuntu/suse linux & windows 7 & 10). The performance of all VMs is fine, except the windows 10 VMs peformance.
In windows Task Manager the disks Read/Write speed maximum was ~3,4MB/s. The active time is quite high, usually close to 100% in idle. The result of HDTune Benchmarks is totally fine with an average of more than 100MB/s.
After setting the size of the virtual memory as suggested, the task managers maximum disk read/write spead is at ~10MB/s.
Still the system is incredibly slow, when i type "c" "m" "d" into search i have to wait 5 seconds until all letters are there and another 3 seconds until the result shows up.
Do you have any idea how to fix this?
Additional Information: Win10 VM has 8GB RAM, more than enough CPU speed/cores.
The Servers Hardware (Server was bought as 100% VMWare 6.0 compatible): Board: Supermicro X9DRi-F CPU 1* XEON E5-2620 V2 RAM: 8 * 8GB Registered 12800 RAID Controller: MegaRaid 9271-8i with BBU Unit RAID configuration: RAID 6 with 5 * 3TB Caviar Red (WD30EFRX)
I hope thats all information you need.
Thanks for your help, Paul
