My question is that i have a client running a foxpro database in dbf format. They are acessing this data via network share. It is virtual server utilizing vmware the server image and all the dat data resides on SAN, acessed via fiber channel.
the problem is the application is dragging and access time isn't what it should be. My feelings are that a dbf style data base that needs a client on workstation to perform the processiing is taxing the SAN with just way to many read, right and data transfers to the client. This coupled with their entire infrastructure servers (that are virtualized) could be causing some type of issue.
the performance monitors show no excessive utilization in processing, disk activity nic or memory.
I guess i'm wondering can the fiber channel bus be saturated while the disks show low utilization in perfomance monitor? And can this be viewed from a vmware management console
Or am i reaching hear? I look forward to any and responses
Thank you all for your time and input
