VMware Disk Utilization
Posted on 2014-01-08
Hello, I have a VMware 5.5 running on a Dell T620 (New setup). Currently it's running one DC and one FPS server. I've gotten several reports from users access to files on the shared drive is at times very slow. There is also a SQL express database running on there that two people use and they have reported delays as well.
I had AV software on there, but I have since uninstalled it. I've checked the performance charts on vSphere and the disk usage doesn't appear to be spiking. The server has gigabit to the desktop and nothing in taskmanager is maxed out. When I'm remoted into the server it doesn't lag or show signs of slowness.
I'm wondering if there is a piece of software I can install on the server to monitor it for IOPs and see if I can pinpoint what could be causing the lag? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
