AFF, NVMe, EF-Series, and SolidFire Discussions


Esxi 6.5 > AFF220 (24xSSD) > NFS using a single 10Gbe SFP+ connection.


IOmeter giving 40.000 IOPS when doing 4k 100% read random (Inside VM). Tried adding more workers, but the 40k. appears to be the limit.


Is this a good number or would it be a benefit to modify ESXi settings like queue depth?


Also I am not sure if it is just the 10Gbe link maxing out?


Things run just fine, but its always nice to see some numbers for reality check.
