Hi I am trying to automate HCIBench through vmwarecode/hcibenchApiCallSample.py, and then I found that there is no API only for deployment and I/O, this leads to the inability to quickly perform I/O tests on the existing guest vm. Despite the reuse option, it is very unfriendly to frequently check and restart the vm. Will this be supported in future versions?

i think i can make this available in API only, exposing testing only to customer w/o validating VM settings is risky. If you have DHCP in your vLAN meaning no need HCIBench to provide internal static IP, then you can consider to run /opt/automation/io-test.sh to run i/o testing and run /opt/automation/deploy-vms.sh to deploy vms only.
