I am learnng VM sphere, have some questions:
1) Does single LUN can have exactly single disk or it can have more?
2) Assuming single LUN can have multiple disks, Let’s say we have two disks :
These two disks are mapped to LUN0. Further more, LUN0 is mapped to DataStore0.
What is the maximum I/O Datastore0 can handle? is it 200/sec because it contains two disks each with 100/sec I/O?
3) Let say we have two Datastores:
Datastores1 has one LUN0 , LUN0 can support 100/sec I/O.
Datastores2 has two LUN1, LUN2, each LUN can support 100/sec I/O.
Will Datastore2 support max 200/sec I/O total ?
4) Please see the following set up.
VMk1 188.8.131.52 –VSW1–VMNIC1—SW1—–184.108.40.206-ISCSI TARGET( LUN)
Above VMK1 is used for storage, SW1 is dedicated switch for Storage. Should we enable JUMBO frame on SW1 and VSW1? What is VM’s recommendation?
When I did the packet capture, I see a lot of full sized frames, each write operation can be up to 1M bytes of block. So if a VM performs a single Write of 1M bytes, it will require transmission of many IP packets. Considering this, enabling jumbo frames will reduce transmission of many frames needed for single Write.
I am curious about VM’s recommendation if there is one.
Thanks and have a good weekend!!
