Performance test on vmware or hyper-v
please did anybody performed test on hyper-v or vmware?
I will need measure total CPU, mem, IO of whole environment, i will also need measure cpu, mem, io of each vmware machine where i will simulate work with our product.
Do you know any good topics about perf. test on vmware and hyper-v? Also any good tools?
(1) This is a common deployment (and as a result) test target platform for the past decade
(2) There are many well known issues associated with clock float and control of initial and in test conditions should you choose to use VMs as generators for load
(3) Get the stats from the Hypervisor tier, not from within the virtual machine. So, for VMWARE, use the SNMP interface or the native management interface to get details on the amount of resources allocated to the virtual machines. The same goes for Microsoft Hyper-v
(4) You should find plenty of material going back over a decade online related to performance testing and virtual machines. Leverage your natural curiosity as a performance tester and the research skills which are so valuable and sought after in a performance testing role.
