Trying to Discover the Bottleneck for Storage Vmotion Performance
I'm trying to determine where my bottleneck is as I'm seeing some very poor performance when doing a Storage vMotion migration (migrating VM's to a different host and datastore)
My Vmotion IP subnet is the same as my Management Subnet.( Esxi host management IP subnet on the same subnet as Vmotion) Is this what is causing the problem? It is the way this environment was setup before I got here. Normally I would always separate the Vmotion vlan from the management vlan but that is the way it is here.
Anyway Is here is my setup
Vcenter 6.5 u1b Build 6816762
Esxi hosts are mixed 5.0, 5.5 and 6.5
Is there a good tool to use to discover the bottleneck?
I was googling and found iPerf that comes with Esxi 6.5 but ive never used it before.
Any suggestions? I really want to improve the storage vmotion performance
