Is there any plan to open source this project?

Jul 07, 2022

I am new to HCIbench. I am in the process of installing VDBench in a vSAN v7.0 environment.. I need detailed instructions (step-by-step) on how to complete the installation process. For instance:

1. what system should VDBench be installed on?
2.what directory should I install VDBench
3.where should Java be installed

If there is link I can point to, that would be awesome.

Thanks...

there's a user manual you can check out.

you dont need to care about anything of vdbench, hcibench allows you to use embedded fio or vdbench, vdbench installation will be taken care by hcibench, you just need to download the vdbench zip. java etc. is already installed.

Hello everyone,

I have an issue with the below regarding the DNS, all DNS configured well and pingable/reachable without any problem

even when I tried to enable the IP option and then added the IP or host name getting another issue I have tried that with 4 different clusters and I got the same issue.

the hosts specified in the box needs to use the same format as they are added into vcenter. if they appear in vcenter with hostnames not ip, then you should specify hostnames in the box as well.

also, please try to ping the hosts by name in HCIBench to find out whether the DNS is properly configured or not.

Hi Team,

I have an issue with predefined parameter file.

The VDBENCH workload profile example1 is not defined correctly, please check it!

I've tried to use some of this input in the file:
Oracle:

dedupratio=1.1

compratio=1.6

dedupunit=8k

wd=wd_oltp,sd=sd*,seekpct=85,rdpct=69.4,xfersize=(8k,78.45,16k,7.58,32k,6.65,64k,4.28,81k,0.92,128k,1.68,490k,0.44)

rd=rd_OLTP,wd=wd*,iorate=max,elapsed=1800,warmup=600,interval=1

SQL:

dedupratio=1.1

compratio=1.5

dedupunit=8k

wd=wd_SQL,sd=sd*,seekpct=75.8,rdpct=86.4,xfersize=(8k,57.16,16k,4.58,32k,8.24,64k,28.12,122k,0.82,506k,0.68,1024k,0.4)

rd=rd_SQL,wd=wd*,iorate=max,elapsed=1800,warmup=600,interval=1

VDI:

dedupratio=3

compratio=1.6

dedupunit=8k

wd=wd_vdi,sd=sd*,seekpct=97,rdpct=23.8,xfersize=(1k,5.21,2k,6.14,4k,42.73,8k,22.83,10k,4.47,16k,10.1,32k,5.42,64k,1.14,133k,0.53,235k,0.95,1023k,0.48)

rd=run_vdi,wd=wd*,iorate=max,el=1800,in=1,warmup=600

Can you advice how to create parameter file for various workloads?

Thank you in advance!

you did not specify the SD section, meaning no device was specified, please refer to vdbench manual or hit ADD button in HCIBench.
