  • 1.  how to measure bandwidth from host to iscsi san

    Posted May 17, 2017 04:47 PM

    we have 2 hosts with 10 gig iSCSI links to SAN . (2 per host , jumbo frames enables , no teaming, isolated vlan)

    We are receiving reports of slow read speeds (at the VM level)  after upgrade.


    What is the best / most accurate way that i can measure the throughput of the VM to the SAN?

    Thanks

    1 question.

    Are you sure that jumbo frames are enabled at the physical switch?

    It´s normal to enable jumbo frames in vswitch but no in physical switch
