my information page comes up blank, and then when I hit test it take about 3 seconds and says test was successful.

did you press "save configuration" button before validation?

Sep 09, 2016

Yes I did, I did resolve this issue, but I made two changes at once, so not sure which did it.
1) I used IP instead of DNS for vcenter (DNS typically works for me for this vcenter)
2) I changed from domain\username to administrator@vsphere.local
Unfortunately when I did get the blank information page, it never told me what the problem was.

After getting through the above, I did get errors about not finding xyz data center or xyz cluster, and realized it case sensitive. Maybe for next release put a comment about that or preferrably make the field case insensitive.

Thanks great program.

Thanks for you feedback!

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.

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

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.
