A few days ago vSphere 6.0 Update 3 was announced. Beside the bugfixes and security updates there is a feature I would like to turn out.
If you have a backup software like Veeam that maps your storage directly, you get a lot of “Map disk region” entries.
Last year at VMworld 2016 in Barcelona I attended the session “vCenter Performance Series Deep Dive INF8108R” with Ravi Soundararajan and Pryia Sethuraman from VMware. After the session I spoke to Ravi and explained the issue about filling up the vpx_task table with this entries.
Now I saw this being addressed in the Release Notes vCenter 6.0 Update 3. I’ve not tested it yet, but I’m sure this would help everybody who uses this direct SAN Mode. I also would like to encourage you being part of the next VMworld. This case shows me that your feedback is highly valued by the Engineers of VMware.
Hope to see you there 😉
