It my understanding from best practice doc(bpg_nimble_storage_vmware_vsphere5.pdf) that any LUN which will contain VMFS datastores should be set to use the ESX performance policy.
It is also my understanding that this policy uses a 4k block size on nimble.
My question is in regards to the block alignment document: https://connect.nimblestorage.com/docs/DOC-1185. Does the table on page 3/4 also apply to VMDKs on VMFS volumes or does this only apply to volumes directly mounted using MS iSCSI initiator, etc? If it does apply to VMFS should there be a column referencing VMware block size of 1MB(or 8k sub allocation) blocks, etc and that taken into account when discussing?
