Create 11 60GB volumes in the database storage pool with no snapshot reserve, and name them dvdstore# (# being 1-11). 6. Create one 1.28TB volume in the database storage pool with no snapshot reserve, and name it OS-Log. 7. Enable shared access to the iSCSI target from multiple initiators on every volume. 8. Create an access control record for every volume without specifying any limitations. 9. Create a read-only SNMP community name to use for group monitoring. HP StorageWorks storage configuration We connected the HP Server to the HP StorageWorks storage via two 4 Gb/s Fibre Channel cables. We configured the HP StorageWorks storage into two disk groups using RAID 10. Figure 8 shows the storage layout. Our database disk group (Disk Group 1) contained 48 disks. Our VM operating system and log disk group (Disk Principled Technologies, Inc.: Virtualized OLTP workload performance comparison of end-to-end solutions: Dell PowerEdge R710 with Dell EqualLogic storage vs. HP ProLiant DL385 G5 with HP StorageWorks EVA 4400 storage 5 Group 2) contained 12 disks. We created one 819GB volume in the operating system and log disk group, which we connected to ESX Server as a single data store and assigned to one fibre channel port. Following VMware best practices, we used the vSphere client to connect the storage to ESX to ensure proper alignment. We created two 1,569GB volumes in the database disk group, which we connected to ESX Server as two data stores and assigned to one fibre channel port. Figure 8: The layout of the HP StorageWorks storage. Setting up the storage 1. Create a disk group with the following parameters: a. Name: Database b. Disks: 1-48 c. Disk drive failure protection: None d. Alarm Level: 100% 2. Create a disk group with the following parameters: a. Name: OS-Log b. Disks: 49-60 c. Disk drive failure protection: None d. Alarm Level: 100% 3. Create a new vDisk with the following parameters: a. Name: Database1 Principled Technologies, Inc.: Virtualized OLTP workload performance comparison of end-to-end solutions: Dell PowerEdge R710 with Dell EqualLogic storage vs. HP ProLiant DL385 G5 with HP StorageWorks EVA 4400 storage 6 b. Size: 1,569 GB c. Disk Group: Database d. Redundancy: Vraid 1 4. Create a new vDisk with the following parameters: a. Name: Database2 b. Size: 1,569 GB c. Disk Group: Database d. Redundancy: Vraid 1 5. Create a new vDisk with the following parameters a. Name: OS-Log b. Size: 819 GB c. Disk Group: OS-Log d. Redundancy: Vraid 1 6. Create a Host, and add the world wide name for both Fibre Channel adapters on each server under test. Adjusting BIOS settings To maximize performance for each server, we adjusted the BIOS settings as follows: • • Dell PowerEdge R710 system: We enabled virtualization. HP ProLiant DL385 G5 system: We enabled virtualization and enabled No-Execute Page-Protection. Setting up the host server We installed build 148592 of a version of ESX still under development on the host server. ESX build 148592 supports the new virtualizat...
