2.2.3 Cluster Size A minimum cluster size is enforced to ensure VMware HA. In the case of a vSAN based cluster, the minimum number of hosts is 4 with the FTT (failures to tolerate) set to 1 using RAID–5 erasure coding. In the case of non–vSAN clusters the minimum number of hosts is 2. A maximum cluster size is also enforced.
2. Perform a VMware Storage vMotion to move the VMDK on the 1MB formatted datastore to another datastore with a larger block size. References include VMware KBs 1004040 and 1005544. 3. Reformat the datastore. There is no way to change the block size of a VMFS datastore once it has been created.
Sep 29, 2015 · One of the very nice things about this appraoch is that, through the use of Storage DRS, when one datastore in a datastore cluster starts to run out of space, possibly as a result of thinly provisioned VMs growing in size, SDRS can use Storage vMotion to move VMs around the remaining datastores in the datastore cluster and avoid a datastore ...
Jun 21, 2016 · Purduepete007 Jun 21, 2016 at 10:56 AM. My "Standard" has been 4TB and 2TB depending on what I expect to be on it. I just expanded a 4TB datastore on secondary storage to 6TB for a local replicated copy of production VMs.
What this buys you if you DeDupe is that the datastores are deduped in a maximum capacity by matching to like function, and make sure to turn off DeDupe on SWAP and any kind of scratch disks. Beyond the above tip, I reiterate, VMware loves 500GB 1MB Block VMDK Datastores for performance.
After being allocated, the size does not shrink if the application space requirements are subsequently reduced. Additional disk space provided to the GMS Virtual Appliance in the virtual environment, beyond the respective limits of 250GB or 950GB, is not utilized. ESX/ESXi can be configured with datastores of varying block sizes.
VMware recommends a frame size of 9000 bytes. NFS solutions are always software driven. As a result, the storage traffic increases the CPU load on the ESX hosts. For both iSCSI and NFS, TCP/IP offload features of modern network cards can decrease the CPU load of these protocols.
