In this video, Russ Long covers the way DRS utilizes vMotion to migrate virtual machines within the DRS cluster. Learn the different settings used and their effect on vMotion within the cluster
- [Instructor] DRS utilizes VMotion…to migrate VMs from one host to another.…This allows DRS, if configured to do so,…to migrate VMs that are live between hosts…to balance resource consumption across all hosts…in the cluster.…Now there are three options when choosing…the automation level of DRS.…This determines how much action…you want DRS to take without any intervention.…Now, manual doesn't allow DRS to do anything…without your say so.…
Everything will require administrative action.…Partially automated is a little different.…We allow DRS to place VMs on recommended host…but only during the initial power on of a virtual machine.…Full automation allows DRS to place VMs…wherever it believes would be best to balance…the cluster resource consumption.…How much deviation that is tolerated…is wholly dependent upon the migration threshold…you configure.…
Now when DRS determines that there is…an unbalanced cluster,…it will make migration recommendations…or actually move the virtual machines…if you're fully automated.…Now in a manual or partially automated DRS configuration,…
