In this video, learn how to configure Storage I/O Control (SIOC) in vSphere 6.7 to prioritize storage traffic. Also, learn how to configure shares, limits, and reservations.
- [Instructor] In this video I'll demonstrate how … to Configure Storage IO Control. … To help prioritize storage bandwidth. … So here I am in my vSphere client. … I'm going to go to the storage view, … and I'm going to choose one of my data stores here. … And I'll click on Configure. … And under the configure screen for this data store, … you can see under data store capabilities, … that Storage IO Control is currently disabled. … So that's the first thing I'm going to do is edit this … and enable Storage IO Control and statistics collection. … And so what I'm going to do here is choose between, … do I want to measure Storage IO Control, … based on the percentage of peak throughput … or do I want to set a manual configuration, … to where if a certain level of latency occurs, … that's when Storage IO Control is invoked. … So the purpose of Storage IO Control is … to prioritize traffic using shares … and limits and reservations. … And under normal circumstances that share structure … is not enforced. …
