Which VMs are causing latency?

Post by pufferdude » Dec 12, 2012 9:36 pm

I have Monitor set up and running great. Once in a while I get an alert that the read or white latency on a specific datastore and/or host has exceeded the default 100ms threshold (our rickety SAN is being overtaxed and will soon been replaced with a newer model)... but I can't seem to figure out how to use that info to find out what *VMs* on the identified host are actually causing the excessive I/Os and increasing my latency.

I realize it's possible that "a bunch of VMs all did something at the same time" and thus the entire I/O capacity of the storage is being exceeded without a specific VM being the culprit, but is there a way to know for sure? Can someone point me in the right direction on how to investigate "what" is causing the latency beyond which host and datastore I get alerted-to?

Hi Jim,

Can you please tell me if you've tried using a "Stack by Virtual Machines" view that is available on each datastore that should give you exactly what you're after?

Thanks!

Nope! Hadn't managed to find that one. Perfect! Thanks for the quick response.

Hello,

I use Veeam one 6.5 free edition.
I can't find "Stack by Virtual Machines" view. Is this one available in the free version ? ?

Rgds.

Hi, Fabrice. I’ve just checked it out with our Free license, and "Stack by Virtual Machine" option seems to be there.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.
