  • VMFS Benchmarking.

    All --


    Did a search inside the forum, but couldn't find anything -- it could be friday slowness..
    Which programs have you used or recommend to benchmark HDD speed inside a VM against an iSCSI VMFS store ?



    I've looked at HDTune, but the site indicates there isn't 2003 or 2008 support. Preferably, i'd like to install it on a test 2003/2008 VM.


    I've setup a vSphere environment where i have a dual-port qlogic connecting into a cybernetics mi-SAN iSCSI SAN with Multipathing enabled. I want to examine and learn how to correctly interpret the results from a benchmark test.
