    VMware Question - Windows 7/8 running on vSphere 5.5

    Andrew Wark Wayfarer

      Anyone else seeing large IO from running a workstation OS like Windows 7 or 8 on a virtual machine hosted on a vSphere 5.5 ESXi host?

       

      These things are averaging 50 IOPs with max of 450-900 IOPs when my SQL machines are averaging about 20 and maxing at 540 IOPs. Makes no sense why a workstation that no one has logged into since December is outpacing a SQL machine that churns 24/7.

       

      Any thoughts?
