1) Is it possible to not redeploy new VMs every time a batch of tests is run? I would like to prevent having to write condition vdisks every time.
2) Is there a way to add a custom name to a parameter file generated using the "Generate" button?

1) if you have ran your test already and you have all your VMs preserved, you could go to HCIBench ssh console and run /opt/automation/io-test.sh to just run the workload w/o redeploy.
2) the file name is generated automatically, you can go to /opt/automation/vdbench-param-files to modify the names.

Tried emailing VSANperformance@vmware.com and received a bounce back. Can you guys check this?

Remote Server returned '<[208.91.2.10] #5.0.0 smtp; 5.1.0 - Unknown address error 550-'5.1.1 <VSANperformance@vmware.com>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local recipient table' (delivery attempts: 0)>'

We will take a look into it. Thanks for the information!

When I hit "Validate" it appears to attempt to validate but nothing happens and it only displays a blank screen. Additionally when I attempt to run the test itself the same thing happens, says "Deployment Started" then immediately cuts to "Test Finished" with no test results.

Deployed with a static IP address.

Sep 07, 2016

also could you share the logs in /opt/automation/logs?

Sep 07, 2016

Do you mean you deployed HCIBench with static IP? What's ur browser btw?

Could you try to run /opt/automation/pre-validate-config.sh from the HCIBench backend console and see what happen?

Sep 08, 2016

Sorry yes my HCIBench VM has a static IP address.

My Browser is Chrome 51.0.2704.103 m (64-bit)

After running the script the following is output:

/usr/lib/ruby/2.3.0/psych.rb:471:in 'initialize' : No such file or directory @ rb_sysopen - /opt/automation/lib/../conf/perf-conf.yaml (Errno::ENOENT)
from /usr/lib/ruby/2.3.0/psych.rb:471:in 'open'
from /usr/lib/ruby/2.30./psych.rb:471:in 'load_file'
from /opt/automation/lib/pre-valiadation.rb:8:in '<main>'

Which refers to this line in the Ruby script:

entry = YAML.load_file("#$basedir/../conf/perf-conf.yaml")

And when I check the contents of the file in the error I see that there is not a perf-conf.yaml file. Is this supposed to be generated by the VDBench parameter page?

Sounds like u did not press "save configuration" button after filling up all the fields?

Sep 08, 2016

Oh, yeah that would make sense. Following directions is hard sometimes. Everything is working now thank you for the help.

I used latest versions for both HCIBench(1.5.0.1) and vdbench ( 5.04.06) . VMs are created but test does not give any error, just stays at deploy status. I checked the logs, at the host log, it says "No test selected". Any clue?

Aug 25, 2016

Did it get chance to proceed? Did you re-run the test and same thing happened?
"No test selected" is not err, if it's still hanging on there, could you send the logs to VSANperformance@vmware.com?
Thanks!

I waited for an hour or something, no process update. I checked the created VMs, they had no CPU usage, so I killed the test. Anyway, When I have time, I will it again and send you the logs.

Sep 01, 2016

are you testing against a non-vsan datastore and checked "deploy on host"? if yes, i think you hit a bug and i will push the new version (1.5.0.3) asap. Thanks!

Sep 01, 2016

Exactly, I deploy on single host on vCenter and Storage is non-vsan. I also choose "NONE" for Initialize Storage Before testing" option.

Sep 01, 2016

the work-around now is uncheck "deploy on host", deployment path will change but all the other will remain the same.

Aug 31, 2016

Thanks! And please note if you have selected "Initialize Storage before testing", that might process a long time depending on your deployment data set because that costs time
