Please help me to resolve this issue. I provisioned 4 Windows XP VMs on a ESXi server to bunch of users. Subsequently I received complaints saying that the Server performance is slow. To check the system performance, I used a benchmark tool " Novabench" and found the Drive access speed for VMware VM is very slow, when compare to a normal Windows PC. I tried few options by adjusting the share value and by making it High, but it didn't result in any performance improvement.
FYI, the VMware tools have been properly installed.
Please let me know what could be the problem and how to correct it. Please let me know if you need more information. Hereby I have attached screenshot of VM and the Novabench benchmark results. In the benchmark results, you can see the Drive write speed for VMware VM is very slow when compare to Normal Windows PC.
