HA Admission control: How can I check how much reserved resources are used?


Advertise here with BSA

I had this question twice in the past three months, so somehow this is something which isn’t clear to everyone. With HA Admission Control you set aside capacity for fail-over scenarios, this is capacity which is reserved. But of course VMs also use reservations, how can you see what the total combined used reserved capacity […]

VMworld Sessions with vSAN Customers


Advertise here with BSA

At VMworld, there were various sessions with vSAN Customers, many of which I have met in some shape or form in the past couple of years. Some of these stories contain some great use cases or stories. Considering they are “hidden” in 60-minute sessions I figured I would write about them and share with you […]

CTO2860BU & VIN2183BU: It is all about Persistent Memory


Advertise here with BSA

I was going through the list of sessions when I spotted a session Persistent Memory by Rich Brunner and Rajesh V. Quickly after that I noticed that there also was a PMEM session by the perf team available. Both CTO2860BU and VIN2183BU I would highly recommend watching. I would recommend starting with CTO2860BU though, is it gives […]

UI Confusion: VM Dependency Restart Condition Timeout


Advertise here with BSA

Various people have asked me, and I wrote about this before in several articles but as part of a longer article which makes it difficult to find. When specifying the restart priority or restart dependency you can specify when the next batch of VMs should be powered on. Is that when the VMs are powered […]

What happens if all hosts in a vSphere HA cluster are isolated?


Advertise here with BSA

I received this question through twitter today from Markus who was going through the vSphere 6.7 Clustering Deep Dive. And it is fairly straightforward: what happens when all hosts are isolated in a cluster, will the isolation response be triggered? @DuncanYB or @FrankDenneman I now read the HA section of #ClusteringDeepDive 2 times but I […]

Must read white paper: Persistent Memory performance with vSphere 6.7


Advertise here with BSA

Today I noticed this whitepaper titled: Persistent Memory Performance on vSphere 6.7. An intriguing topic for sure as it is something “relatively new and something I haven’t encountered too much in the field. Yes, I talk about Persistent Memory, aka NVDIMMs, in my talks usually but then it typically relates to vSAN. I have not […]

What happened to MaxCostPerEsx41DS? It doesn’t seem to work in vSphere 6.x?


Advertise here with BSA

Today I received a question which also caught me by surprise, someone updated from vSphere 5.0 and he noticed that when doing an SDRS Maintenance Mode that the setting MaxCostPerEsx41DS did not work. This setting actually limits the number of active SvMotions on a single datastore. You can imagine that this can be desired when […]

We knew when we released the paper version of the book that many would yell: What about an e-book? Although sales numbers of the Host Deep Dive and previous Clustering Deep Dive books have shown that by far most people prefer a printed copy, we decided to go ahead and create an ebook as well. […]
