I have this Nexenta ZFS on my ESXi (5.5, server has only 16 GB) deployed, nfs enabled for my vm's.
*I only granted Nexenta 3 GB but performance is really for crying out loud, what can I do to optimize performance on vm ... besides granting more ram?
*does installing vmware tools help on performance? installed it before (with lot of hassle) but vmxnet 3 adaptor is not supported
*I wanted to install Nexenta to hardware mapped laptop disks (mirror), this didn't work, is it a supported config/should it work ... should I?
*any special configs on Nexenta for performance optimization?
*the Nexenta zfs is on 1 SSD, can I backup the configs and use for disaster/recovery?
*Please check config, looks fine to me:
*Update: raised the ram to 8GB and ran another vm (Windows 2012) from another machine, still terribly slow (still booting -for 10 minutes now-) .... What a dissapointment.
