I have my first Nimble array and ready to begin playing
Question: I am setting up some tests and I have a SQL 2005 server (Win 2008). I am ready to create a new LUN for the SQL Logs. The ESXi 5.1 will connect to the LUN, not from within the guest O/S.
When I create the LUN I can specify performance policy, should I use "SQL Server Logs (block 4k, comrpess yes, cache no)? I was wondering whether its better to create a policy like this: block 32k, compress yes, cache no?
I am referring to this document: http://blogs.vmware.com/apps/2012/03/your-guide-to-virtualizing-sql-on-vsphere-part-1.html
