Recently I was asked to knock up a guest post for the VMware EMEA blog site.
Im happy to say it went live today –
I have printed the vSphere Troubleshooting Mind Maps as a separate pdf file to help with downloads for people who are interested.
The download is www.elasticsky.co.uk/vsphere6_troubleshooting_mindmaps
Many thanks to Phil Peters for the opportunity.
It is the final day of the vSphere 6 Live Online Troubleshooting course I am leading.
It’s been a busy week with some great discussions on all things troubleshooting and VMware.
Here is the last in the series of the Mind Maps I have given as handouts for having a place to start with a problem in a particular layer!
Day 4 on the vSphere 6 troubleshooting workshop and another mindmap for the collection.
As mentioned Im in the midst of teaching the vSphere 6 troubleshooting course.
Todays top is based around compute and its cluster functions – HA, DRS, etc
Here is the next mindmap in the series.
Here is my vSphere 6 troubleshooting course hand out for storage module. This course is aimed at VCP and VCIX type certifications and to help vAdmins develop some processes for troubleshooting.
I have tried to create a mindmap and a thought process whereby the vAdmin reviews,
- Baseline & trend Metrics,
- Capacity Usage – Depends on vendor or design, consider risk, snapshots, swap file etc.
- Disk Latency – If metrics show greater than 20 ms latency review as potential issue.
- Kernel Command Latency – Anything greater than 2ms maybe an issue. This should be as close to 0ms as possible.
- Queue Latency – Anything greater than 1ms latency then review.
Combined with end point information such as;
- WWN or WWPN
- IP Address configuration
- Physical Port reference
anyway, here is the vSphere 6 Troubleshooting Mindmap for Storage
