I am having a recurring problem where by the number of VM's reported back after a test is not consistent. I am using the default easy run option (have also found it with other custom runs). It deploys 40 VM's for this test but often only reports around 35 in the results. It's the same with both FIO and VCBench. I also checked that I can ping all 40 VM's from the HCIBench VM during the test run. The logs state is faults to SSH to the missings VM's. I am trying to compare the impact of encryption on an 8 node stretched cluster. Any advice greatly received! :)

this looks like network issue, or some host was disconnected when the testing was running? Could you help to repro this issue and send all hcibench logs to vsanperformance@vmware.com?

Thanks, Logs sent! No host network issues or disconnected hosts seen during the tests.
