Recently we’ve had some serious storage related issues regarding latencies, which in some cases even resulted in frozen VM’s. In this post I would like to share how we’ve troubleshooted this issues with the help of VMware vRealize Log Insight and vRealize Operations Manager.
In this post I would like to share a demo on the HP Enterprise Business Youtube channel by Calvin Zito (@HPStorageGuy) which shows how a VVOL endpoint is created and added on a VMware vSphere environment with HP 3PAR storage. With VVOL’s you create a storage endpoint instead of a LUN or Volume on which your VMFS datastore and VM’s reside. Each VM has it’s one-to-one mapping with their unique storage volume and in this video is demonstrated how you can view and manage each individual VM with associated volumes and configuration, VMDK, swap and snapshot files.
