My vlinks choice – 4-2011
This week I’m a bit late…so.. let’s go.
This week my attention was caught by performance related posts and by some “introduction guide type” posts:
- Jumbo Frames Comparison Testing with IP Storage and vMotion – a detailed post by Jason Boche with a test of jumbo frames to better understand if there is some real benefits using them.
- Storage IO Control and Storage vMotion? – more info about using storage vMotion of a virtual disk placed in a storage IO control (SIOC) enabled datastore from a VMware senior performance engineer.
- New hardware can affect TPS – a post about the how new CPUs affect Transparent Page Sharing.
- Presentation on VMware vSphere 4.1 Storage Features – an overview of the new vSphere 4.1 storage features by Scott Lowe as presented to the Triad VMUG meeting.
- vSphere Licensing and Options Overview – it’s not always easy to remember all the vSphere licensing options: this overview by VMguru.nl comes in handy.
- Windows PowerShell Survival Guide – I think that PowerShell is becoming important for vSphere administrators: this page is full of links to resources that can help starting with it.
