Click Next to load the driver. This happens even if the computer on which you run the command is not a domain controller. It will be accounted as part of the queueing delays in that case. So it is pretty much a direct channel to the kernel from the driver perspective. I retested the same size volume on a single disk and performance was exactly as it should be, so I have to believe there is in fact an issue with stripping across VSAN backed storage. VMware says that they think everything with 2. Has anyone noticed any benefits of using one over the other?

Maximum Adapter Queue Depth. This disk is not a system disk, so the VM will boot normally, and the Windows operating system will automatically find the drivers it can use to install this VMware Paravirtual controller.

Windows Server 2016 VM with a VMware Paravirtual SCSI controller

Click Next to load the driver. Default Adapter Queue Depth. Changing controller type by modifying virtual machine vmx file. Let me point out what coalescing means: When you add SCSI controllers, they are numbered sequentially 1, 2, and 3.

Selecting the I/O Controller Type for a Virtual Machine

If you are using more than one SCSI controllers, then as a best practice, the virtual disks should be distributed across those controllers to get performance out of the VM.


Has anyone noticed any benefits of using one over the other? Submit a new text post. Also the number of additional PVSCSI adapters really only has a benefit when the the storage is sufficient to handle it. When you power-on the VM, virtual machine will pick this change in vmx file and will reflect the same in Web Client.

The following figure shows the general implementation of the “hypercalls” using a paravirtual adapter. These were Ring 3 for all applications as the least privileged and Ring 0 as the most privileged one. Lsj queue depth is per adapter.

Querying the policy through diskpart shows this. If you have any questions please let me know.

The driver coalesces bases on OIO only and not throughput. This is just for knowledge. So I think should be really performant? Reboot the VM ….

There are two ways you might want to proceed depending on whether parallel have already deployed some Windows VMs or you’re building a new VM from scratch.


Excellent blog I visit this blog it’s really awesome. Hi, Vladan, is it recommended that: Am I interpreting the article correctly, with the below logic?

There is 2 paraplel necessary. Hi Teo, Thanks for sharing. I wrote a blog article in Oct on this same topic that is still frequently referenced today so I figure it was due for an update.

There’s more to the story. For Demo Contact us.

In the following cases, the virtual machine might fail to boot correctly and you might have to enter the BIOS setup and select the ex boot device: How that looks like you see para,lel the following figure. Go to the edit settings dialog and delete the 1Gb disk you have added in step 1. It will be accounted as part of the queueing delays in that case. Coalescing can be thought of as buffering where multiple events are queue for simultaneous processing.
