Our performance counter of the week is a key storage related metric - CMDs/Sec. This is part of our new effort to cover a a new performance counter every week - along with a little bit of other virtualization and cloud stuff as needed. We secretly hope to make you all esxtop performance experts.
This week on So Say SMEs, Kong and I discuss what the costop or %costop performance counter means and how you can use it to resolve performance issues on your vSphere / ESXi environment. You can view costop in esxtop on the main CPU screen that comes up by default.
This week in our So Say SMEs episode we have a quick discussion about the CPU Ready time performance counter in esxtop. This has been covered by some other great blogs and esxtop performance guides. Here we have a quick intro conversation and also talk about the Super Bowl - because we have to talk about the Super Bowl.
Kong and I have returned for a third season of So Say SMEs. We have a few changes for season 3, but we will continue to talk cloud and virtualization with some geek and sports talk too. In terms of changes - Kong has moved over to SolarWinds and we going to focus a bit more on performance when we get the chance.
My voice is still not 100% in this video, but that is a story for another day!
