    Hi All..

    There is a whitepaper out from HP regarding it's best practices with VMware and EVA storage.  It mentions to setup your active/active arrays as a round robin and limit the max iops to 1.

    Has anyone out there followed this procedure?  good or bad experience?

    Also, does anyone know of a powershell or vcli script that I can run to show the active or preferred paths on my luns, rather than clicking through the gui.  Just want to see if I have a path overloaded or not?

    Thanks,

    I've seen this done, and it works very well.

    By setting this, you dont have to worry about a path being overloaded, as everything will be very nearly perfectly balanced.
