Good day all

 

Just need some advice, shall I keep ESXi 6 with downgraded hpsva, or downgrade to 5 to get maximum performance from gen 8?

I do have 16GB RAM, E3-1265L v2, but I have feeling is not max what I can get from this box.

 

Any advices please how to maximize performance, but still to keep power consumption as low as possible.

The Dynamic Smart Array driver is the same for 5.x and 6.0 so you still need to downgrade it.

 

I don't see any reason not to use the latest 6.0 unless you need to manage it from an old vCenter.

I don't have any reason to be honest. I have feeling, 6 is bit more sluggish than 5 was. At least machines are behaving slower in my opinion.

I did for example simple copying from one Windows 7 to Server 2012, using shared folder, and speed was around 1.6MB, shouldn't be faster a bit ?
