Hi Laurent, no, storage latency control is not supported for vSAN storage.

The issue was with VSAN not supporting (or providing invalid data?) in the corresponding performance counters. It would be good to check if recent VSAN versions addressed this @foggy. Thanks!

Seems there are no changes on the VMware side in this regard. They have another API that we don't use, where it works correctly.

Do we have support for this API tracked as the requirement? It did not come up in our recent roadmap discussions.

I think that Veeam should bring support for this on vSAN, in Veeam One too, IO metrics reported by Veeam One for vSAN are false.

+1 for feature request

More and more of our customers are thinking vSAN or are on vSAN today

vSAN is a so great toy for them ;)

It's tracked internally as a feature request, but v12 will not have it implemented. Thanks!
