Guys, just for confirmation.
Do i have to use a 2.6 kernel system?
With 3.0 or more, i get:
# ./fio --version
Illegal instruction
#

Even "IO analyzer" runs on a SLES 11, with 3.11 kernel.
Anything to say?

Anyone have a particular Linux build they are using to use this utility?

Hi Dan,
I didn't notice you are not a VMware employee. We'll make a new mac version maybe it will be helpful to you.

Thanks,

Good idea. I'll set up a public VM for VMware inside users.

Thanks,

sperf.py:72 - ERROR - Didn't find the right hardware info based on NVME1

Nov 02, 2020

I got this error, looks like script could not find datastore ?

Nov 09, 2020

The error means the script can't get some basic info such as the driver/drive model/ storage stack info. But it will not block the test.
If you still met the issue, please send us the logs and your build version to guoh2@vmware.com
Thanks,

Hi Paisarn,
Looks like you meet some error. I'll check this with you after we finished a borathon project.
Hope it is ok for you.

I have the same problem on a vSAN all flash datastore. VMware ESXi, 7.0.1, 16850804

Nov 02, 2020

Hi thanks for working on this tool, a few questions
1) Besides that this test more than VSAN, how is this different then HCI Benchmark Tool?
2) It looks like this can only be deployed from a Linux system to start?
3) What is the impact on a SAN that is already running a workload?

Thanks for your efforts,

Hi Glenn,
There are several different points comparing with an HCI Benchmark tool.
1) This tool is more light-weight. It can get the performance results in 2 mins. You may want to remove some test cases in the config file if you care about the running time.
2) This Tool is more friendly to developers. Users only need to download it to a Linux terminal and run a command. It does support running on DBC.
We will support MAC in the future.
3) This tool will try to immerse the device/datastore, so it will compete with the other workload.

Thanks for your comments,
Haitao
