  • Failover Time for vCenter Server 6.0 Protected by vSphere HA

    2 Mar 2015 | 3:41 pm
    By Jianli Shen, Kimberly Wang, and Lei Chai There are many advantages to virtualizing vCenter Server over installing it on physical devices; these have been blogged about already. VMware best practice also recommends the deployment of vCenter Server as a virtual machine and to use vSphere High Availability (HA) to provide this functionality. The typical scenario is to place vCenter Server in a vSphere HA cluster. HA will protect vCenter Server just like any other virtual machine. If the ESXi server that is running vCenter Server goes down, HA will kick-in and power on this VM from the…

    VMware recently introduced vSphere version 6.0. One of the features of vSphere 6.0 is vSphere Replication 6.0, which is included in the Essentials Plus Kit and higher editions of vSphere. The reason I mention that explicitly is there are still many VMware customers and partners that do not realize they have access to a mature, proven host-based replication technology for their vSphere virtual machines. vSphere Replication is also compatible with VMware Virtual SAN and vCenter Site Recovery Manager. I recently posted a blog article that briefly covers the new features of vSphere Data…

    This Tuesday a buffer overflow in the gethostbyname family of functions (“gethostbyname*”) in the widely used glibc library (CVE-2015-0235) was disclosed.  As soon as we became aware of this vulnerability we began investigating.  We regarded it as a significant vulnerabiliy since the original advisory detailed remote code execution in the Exim mail server. We quickly realized that exploitability of this vulnerability depends on where and how the vulnerable function is invoked.  In particular, if an attacker cannot control the arguments passed to the gethostbyname*…

  • Virtualized Hadoop Performance with vSphere 6

    Jeffrey Buell
    12 Feb 2015 | 2:42 pm
    A recently published whitepaper shows that not only can vSphere 6 keep up with newer high-performance servers, it thrives on their capabilities. Two years ago, Hadoop benchmarks were run with vSphere 5.1 on a cluster of 32 dual-socket, quad-core servers. Very good performance was demonstrated, with the optimal virtualized configuration shown to be actually 2% faster than native for TeraSort (see the previous whitepaper). These benchmarks were recently run on a cluster of the same size, but with ten-core processors, more disks and memory, dual 10GbE networking, and vSphere 6. The maximum…
  • Scaling Out Redis Performance with Docker on vSphere 6.0

In that post we focused on a single instance of a Redis server subject to a more or less artificial workload with the goal of assessing the absolute performance of said instance under various deployment scenarios. In this post we are taking a different point of view, which is maximizing the throughput of multiple Redis instances running on a “large” server under a more realistic workload. Why are we interested in this…

  • Experimenting with Docker, Registrator, and Consul

    28 Feb 2015 | 3:00 pm
    Over the last few days, I’ve been experimenting with Docker, Registrator, and Consul in an effort to explore some of the challenges involved in building a robust containerized infrastructure. While I haven’t finished fully exploring the idea (and documenting what I’ve learned), I did discover one interesting—and unexpected—interaction. Here’s a quick overview of my testing environment: I used two OpenStack Heat templates to spin up two clusters of 5 instances each. The first cluster is a set of CoreOS Linux instances, customized via cloud-init to not run etcd. These instances are…
  • Enabling and Mounting NFS on CoreOS

    20 Feb 2015 | 9:02 am
    I’ve written about CoreOS a fair amount (see here, here, and here), but one of the things that is both good and bad about CoreOS is the automatic update mechanism. It’s good because you know your systems will stay up to date, but it’s bad if you haven’t taken the time to properly address how automatic updates will affect your environment (for example, you’ve manually started some Docker containers instead of using systemd unit files—when the CoreOS system reboots after an update, your Docker containers will no longer be running). Re-architecting your environment to fully account…
  • Presentations in Markdown Using Deckset

    18 Feb 2015 | 8:55 am
    Over the past couple of years, Markdown has become an important part of my computing landscape. I’ve transitioned almost all of my text-based content creation, including this blog, over to Markdown. I’d also been looking for ways that I might be able to extend my use of Markdown into creating presentations as well, but hadn’t—until recently—found a tool that fit into my workflow. Then I started using Deckset. The idea behind Deckset is not unique; there are other projects out there that do the same sort of thing. (Remarkjs is one example that I’ve also used; more on that in a…
  • Vagrant Box for Learning Open vSwitch

    17 Feb 2015 | 12:40 pm
    As you may have picked up from some of my recent posts, I’m focused on building content and tools that will help others learn new projects, products, and technologies that I think will be very relevant in the future. One such project is Open vSwitch (OVS), which I’ve written about quite a bit (you can see all OVS-related posts here). To help others work with and learn about Open vSwitch, I’ve published a new Vagrant base box. (In the event you’re not familiar with Vagrant, take a look at this quick introduction.) The new Vagrant box I’ve created is running Ubuntu 14.04.1 and has…
  • A Quick Thought About Mesos-DNS

    17 Feb 2015 | 9:42 am
    A colleague recently pointed me to the recent Mesosphere announcement of Mesos-DNS, a DNS-based service discovery mechanism for Apache Mesos clusters. A comment made in the announcement got me thinking, and I wanted to briefly share my thoughts. The comment that got me thinking was this: Mesos-DNS is simple and stateless. Unlike Consul and SkyDNS, it does not require consensus mechanisms, persistent storage, or a replicated log. If you’ve been following along here on my site, you know that I’ve written about Consul before (see here), and I have more Consul content planned. I’m…

    Gabrie van Zanten

    Let’s be honest, nobody has made the full swap to the vSphere Web Client yet. I’ve been pushing my colleagues and some customers to start using the Web Client, but it just isn’t up to par with the Windows Client. And I hate to admit but when a host or VM is down and I have to quickly walk through my vSphere environment to check for active storage paths, check VM and host settings, I still use the Windows Client for this. On the VMware Community there is a thread running that burns down the vSphere Web Client very badly, which in my opinion is not necessary. In other occassions VMware…
  • Cannot open the disk and could not open change tracking file

    Gabrie van Zanten
    12 Jan 2015 | 2:00 am
    Lately I have seen a number of VMs going down after the backup has finished and snapshots get removed. At some point when cleaning the snapshot, the ESXi host decides something is wrong and then brings down the VM. After this we’re unable to power on the VM and receive the error: “Cannot open the disk ‘/vmfs/volumes/xxxxxxxxxx/xxxxx.vmdk’ or one of the snapshot disks it depends on”. When you then check the event details of the VM, you’ll see two messages: – “Cannot open the disk ‘/vmfs/volumes/xxxxxxxxxx/xxxxx.vmdk’ or one of the…
  • VMware Auto Deploy with MSCS won’t work

    Our environment is fully built using VMware Auto Deploy 5.1. All the clusters have their own ruleset and we’re very content on how easily we update our hosts and deploy new hosts. However, recently we ran into a major issue with Microsoft Cluster Services inside VMs in combination with VMware Auto Deploy. In a scenario with an “old fashioned” MCSC cluster across boxes with Physical RDMs shared between the two cluster nodes (VMs), these RDMs seem to be stopping an Auto Deployed ESXi host from reconnecting to vCenter Server after a reboot.  A normal reboot of an Auto…

  • vSphere HA respecting VM-Host should rules?

    Duncan Epping
    5 Mar 2015 | 7:48 am
    Advertise here with BSAA long time ago I authored this white paper around stretched clusters. During out testing the one thing where we felt HA was lacking was the fact that it would not respect VM-Host should rules. So if you had these configured in a cluster and a host would fail then VMs could be restarted on ANY given host in the cluster. The first time that DRS would then run it would move the VMs back to where they belong according to the configured VM-Host should rules. I guess one of the reasons for this was the fact that originally the affinity and anti-affinity rules were designed…

    Advertise here with BSAEvery week I get an email from someone asking if I can mentor them, if I can help them get to the next level, if I can help them become a VCDX, if I can explain to them what I did to progress my career. I figured I would write an article for those who wonder what I did, this is not a magic formula by any means, following the same path and putting in the same amount of effort is no guarantee for success. There is also that thing called “being at the right place, at the right time” and of course seeing opportunities, grabbing opportunities and taking risks.

I have been wondering as well, how all of this works, as I also felt that there could easily be a bottleneck. I had some conversations over the last couple of weeks and I figured I would share it with you instead…
