VMware SIOC

New to Nimble Storage so if this has been answered somewhere else please just point me in the right direction:

 

I was going over Best Practices for SIOC in VMware (Using Duncan Eppings Blog post here: http://www.yellow-bricks.com/2010/10/19/storage-io-control-best-practices/)

 

and noticed that it recommended changing the latency thresholds based on the type of storage:

 

  • Change latency threshold based on used storage media type:
    • For FC storage the recommended latency threshold is  20 – 30 MS
    • For SAS storage the recommended latency threshold is  20 – 30 MS
    • For SATA storage the recommended latency threshold is 30 – 50 MS
    • For SSD storage the recommended latency threshold is 15 – 20 MS



I'm thinking that for Nimble storage I would follow the SSD latency thresholds, can anyone confirm this?  I don't see the SIOC setting referenced in the Nimble Storage Best Practices guide for VMware 5.



Thanks,
