Troubleshoot storage performance problems
vSphere Storage is one of the three main infrastructure components of a vSphere deployment (Compute, Storage, and Network).
Mastering VMware vSphere Storage begins with an insightful introduction to virtualization and creating your own virtual machines. We then talk about VMware vCenter Server and virtual machine management, as well as managing vSphere 5 using vSphere Management Assistant (vMA) and esxcli and vmware-cmd commands. We then swiftly move on to a very interesting topic, reviewing the vSphere performance and troubleshooting methodology. We then configure VM storage profiles, Storage DRS, and Storage I/O control. More significantly, we will troubleshoot and analyze storage using the VMware CLI and learn how to configure iSCSI storage.
By the end of the book, you will be able to identify useful information to make virtual machine and virtual data center design decisions.
