ESXi5 - problems with NFS and the data copy store

Hello world

I recently moved into a solution fully virtualized for my network, 3 x 5 ESXi servers running on our GigE network.

First of all, I use all free software from VMware, so vCentre etc is out of the question.

I have major problems when you try to copy files between:

  • NAS (NFS) to ESXi 5 host
  • ESXi host to the NAS (NFS) 5
  • And using VMware converter between ESXi 5 hosts converter Standalone

The problem is that whenever I'm transfer between hosts I am struck with the horrible network performance. Even if I use GigE adapters and switches between my hosts I will receive no more than 12 Mbps speed of transfer real (100 Mbit/s connect?).

On the flipside, if I use virtual guests on the same exact host I can happily transfer data between my NAS (NFS) servers with speeds between 60-150MBps ~ (1000 Mbps).


Speed of 10 Mbps of transfer of ESXi_1 copy OF NFS data store share ~

Server2008 (comments, located on ESXi_1) copy OF NFS 75MBps transfer rate ~.

Server2011 SBS (comments, located on ESXi_2) copy OF Windows share 2008 (ESXi_1) transfer speed 120MBps. ~

ESXi_2 copy OF NFS data store share transfer rate 5MBps ~.

Attached (wtf.png) example:

I copy a file that is located on our NFS share first, it's a 3 GB file to the copy within guest OS (2008), it is indicated in blue - top speed of 80MBps

I copy the same exact NFS share for the host (datastore1), this is indicated in red - top speed of 7.5Mbps

The third transfer/s (green) is between the customers of windows on different hosts, transfer a 6 GB file as well as a copy of the 360 MB file - transfers two happily send to GigE speeds with a peak around 40MBps

I can reflect these results across the three servers without modification. Copies between you will be able to run well enough (not exactly 100% use of GigE) but at the moment where I try to do something to the data store it will just choke at all about a 100 Mbps connection speed.

The final image (wot.png) confuses me beyond belief. I would try to explain what is happening here:

  • This image shows two times the same exact file transfers, except even machine PHYSICS
  • The first (red) transfer between the ESXi_2 host server and the NFS share using the browser data store and direct download - its top speed is around 8MBps
  • The second (green) transfer between a guest server 2008 running on ESXi_2, download the same file exactly at the exact location using vSphere Client. I mean the same EXACT file; It connects to the NFS drive by the data store ESXi_2 (NFS share).

Why on earth can my comments directly download a file on a data store connected to NFS GigE clocked and yet the same exact host cannot go anywhere near corresponding to these speeds?

As indicated in the title, the problem seems to happen whenever I use ESXi datastore browser on the host computer using vSphere Client or between browser datastore ESXi to/from an NFS share.

No one knows what might happen?

Is there some sort of restriction on the transfer of files between a host and shared NFS ESXi 5? Whence this bottleneck?

Thanks in advance for all the help/ideas that guys can throw my way.

P.S. Sorry for the wall of text, I really wanted to give as much information. as possible.

What type of storage you have locally on the host computer?

I have seen this problem with write-through controllers:

  • Problem with certificate and the exception is not available

    So, here is my problem I am trying to connect to a secure server. When I do this, I get to a page telling me the browser appears not that the server is secure and that the certificate is old.

    When I click on the button "Add an exception" a small window opens saying the certificate is new safe and I can't add an exception.

    The exeption box is grey so I can't click in and the button 'Add exception' is olso gray so I can't click on it. I click on the button "Cancel" and return to the page telling me the server is not sure.

    How can I go about solving this problem?

    Check the date and time of the clock on your computer: (double) click on the clock icon in the Windows taskbar.

    Find out why the site is not approved, then click on "Technical Details to expand this section.
    If the certificate is not reliable because no issuer channel was provided (sec_error_unknown_issuer) and then see if you can install the intermediate certificate from another source.

    You can retrieve the certificate and check details such as WHO issued the certificates and the expiration dates of certificates.

    • Click on the link at the bottom of the error page: "I understand the risks".

    Let Firefox recover the certificate: "Add Exception"-> "get certificate".

    • Click on the "view..." button. "and inspect the certificate and the Coachman, who is the issuer of the certificate.

    You can see more details like the intermediate certificates that are used in the details pane.

    If "I understand the risks" is missing, this page can be opened in a (i) frame and in this case, try the shortcut menu and use "Frame this: Open image in New Tab".

    Note that some firewall monitors connections (sure) and that programs like Sendori or FiddlerRoot can intercept connections and send their own certificate instead of the certificate of the Web site.

  • Problem with transmission of the data in table between a driver and a method.

    I'm having a problem with a project for school. We want to take the data in a table, we create in our driver, pass it to the method, do something for her and return the data to the driver. Well, I still get the same error message and after looking at dozens of sites, it seems that I think that I have the correct code... but I still get the same error message. Here is the error message that I've been doing.
    * get() in ola1method may apply to (char [] [])
    x.get (Dar);
    (upwards arrow pointing between x and get) *.

    I'd appreciate any help I'm leaving research to simply looking at my code to try to find the error. My wife things I'm going nuts at the moment.

    Here are my two files, the first is the driver and the second method

    Take a 2D array and send the data to a method, and then put it back
    import java.util.Scanner;
    class ola1driver
    Public Shared Sub main (string args [])
    Entrance to the parser = new Scanner (;
    ola1method x = new ola1method();
    Char [] [] dar = new char [10] [100];
    char dat_input;

    Set up the loop at the entrance a table of 10 x 100 with data imported from a dat file
    for (int i = 0; i < 10; i ++)
    for (int j = 0; j < 100; j ++)
    dat_input = () .charAt (0);
    Dar [i] [j] = dat_input;
    Send the array to the method and displays the original table to compare the return data
    x.Set (Dar);
    for (ip int = 0; ip < 10; ip ++)
    for (int jp = 0; jp jp; < 100 ++)
    System.out.printf ("%n", dar [ip] [jp]);

    To get the data of the method and then print the data in the table opposite
    x.get (Dar);

    for (int r = 0; r < 10; r ++)
    for (int c = 0; c < 100; c ++)
    System.out.printf ("%n", dar [r] [c]);

    Now the method;

    Method to receive a 2D painting, reverse the data and then put it back
    class ola1method
    Char [] [] ar = new char [10] [100];
    Char [] [] rar = new char [10] [100];

    public void set (char [] [] ar)

    Seamus wrote:
    I thought that I sent my method by using the x.set table, and then by calling the reversed with the x.get table.

    x.Set (someArray) in fact to 'send an array to the method '.

    And if x.get () is declared to return an array, then, Yes, it indeed 'retrieve a table. "

    However, these are two completely different methods. The get method doesn't know something on the table sent via the set method unless the game puts a place who knows himself. For example, something like this:

    public class X {
      private int[] arr;
      public void set(int[] arr) {
        this.arr = arr;
      public int[] get() {
        reverse arr and return it
    public class Main {
      public static void main(String[] args) {
        int[] arr1 = {1, 2, 3};
        X x = new X();
        int[] arr2 = x.get();

    However, this seems a bit unusual. It is not clear from your initial post, but looks like it is supposed to be a single method that takes the array and it reverses. If so, you could either simply invert the table and returns nothing, since the variable of the appellant and the parameter of the method will all be pointing to the same table object, or you could return a reference to the table that you have received and reversed, or you can copy the table, reverse the copy and return a reference to that.

    I don't know what your needs are, but the point is that it is more common to call a single method to do something like that, rather than separate set() and get() methods.

  • Problem with LED and the comparison.

    Hi everyone, I have trouble with this application, so I hope that someone could give me some advice. Im going to explain as best I can...

    So in this VI, I have 4 signals that I need to compare them, I need the smallest and largest value, so I used a restructuring of business to do. I do 2 groups to be compared, and then the result of each one of them receives another comparison to get the values that I want. My problem is, for the largest value of all the 4, I need an LED to indicate what is most great, and something I have is in my attachment. I take my first group two and put 2 LEDs, so when the comparison occurs, you turn and the other goes OUT, (which indicates that one is the largest and the other is the smallest), and again the same thing in the other. But as you can see, when running I have two LEDs indicating, in every comparison, which is great, but I need a LED lights up when this value is present. and the other three offshore. I know that work in this way, the result I m going to get, but I can understand how to continue with the result of this step, I need.

    As far as I know, there is no way to compare more than 2 signals at the same time, so I tried to merge the signals, but this didn t help me at all (maybe is something that I do not understand how to merge works, so if anyone has an example on how to do things, i´ll check).

    All data are dynamic, a NI 9237, but since its a laboratory, I can't get a lot of time trying different solutions, so I did a test TDMS file and change the DAQ Assistant for a reading of file of the measure, but the rest is the same.

    Use 'antenna bundle' to build a picture of your values of 4 controls. Return the index of the max and min elements, use 'table max and min. From there on, it should be a wink to indicate the corresponding settings.

  • Problem with iterator and EJB data control

    My project components:

    JDeveloper 12.1.3

    Back end & the intermediate layer, JPA, EJB 3, controls data EJB

    JSF pages simple front end (no fragment), bounded task flow


    I have a weird problem with iterators in my project, project using EJB 3 & JPA and EJB data controls

    When the user come to a page (this page is part of a stubborn workflow) and add a record to a table (linked to an iterator) and without saving changes, leave the page (means output delimited task flow)

    do something else and again back to the first page iterator always keep this line is entry and it cause problems in my system

    If I close the browser and come to this page for sure the line is not there

    I expect when the user leaving a stubborn workflow each thing belongs to this workflow should be deleted. Is this true?

    Or someone has the same problem? Any suggestions / or work around?

  • Problems with fonts and the Fontcache.

    Recently, I noticed that a Svchost was running constantly at high CPU usage, as well as a few programs had stopped working on my PC. After doing some poking around, I believe the problem to be with Fontcache and my fonts. It turns out that my partner has installed a large number of fonts, which I suspect to be corrupted. Unfortunately, I can't open the fonts folder, or the section fonts in Control Panel.

    In an attempt to put an end to the use of the processor (which I think is of Fontcache constantly trying to start upward - and otherwise), I have disabled loading in services, however it still loads up when I try to start a program like InDesign. InDesign will also not load, I suspect that for the same reason.
    I could not remove all the fonts, or find no way to remove them, without access to the section fonts in Control Panel. I tried to access via a command prompt and just can't take the ownershop/control of them to remove them. All of the guides I found on the internet forced me to open the folder of fonts/Control Panel and manually change the permissions using the Windows user interface, but obviously I can't do that.
    Does anyone have a solution to remove fonts or an another workaround for the problem?
    Thank you
    ~ Fishy

  • Problem with FWSM and the same L3 interface switch

    I have two 6513 s with a 802. 1 q trunk linking them. Each switch is redundant Sup720s running in native mode, worm IOS 12.2 (18) SXF (that they were running out of SXD3). A FWSM (ver 2.3 (3), routed mode, unique context) is in each switch, Setup in failover mode.

    I can't get a PC in a virtual LAN that has the defined layer 3 interface on the switch with the active FWSM in this document, to communicate with the devices 'behind' the FWSM. If I move the configuration of layer 3 to this vlan to the other 6513, everything works fine.

    The MSFCs are inside the firewall, they have a configured layer 3 interface in the same vlan as the FWSM 'inside' interface. Several "same security level" interfaces are defined on the FWSM and used to protect the farms. I use OSPF on the MSFCs and FWSM and the routing table is correct.

    The FWSM generates connections to the attempts made by the PC with interface layer 3 defined on the same switch as the active FWSM very well, so this isn't a problem with FWSM ACL.

    A ping of the FWSM "inside" interface from a PC with the defined layer 3 interface on the same switch as the active FWSM fails, although debug icmp trace on the FWSM demand and response shows. A the packet capture, using the NAM-2, only shows the request packets. I captured on the vlan common and FWSM port channel interface bottom of basket.

    Just to add to the confusion, if I capture in the same places, but do the ping of a PC which is in a VLAN with the interface of layer 3 defined in the 6513 which does not contain the active FWSM, that works very well, I see the request and response on the capture of vlan common, but only on demand on the capture of the port channel.

    This problem has been there since the beginning of this implementation and has not changed with IOS and FWSM software upgrades. I had this experience with all the VLANS that I tried to define the interface of layer 3 to on the switch with the active FWSM. I turned on MLS.

    If anyone has experienced this and solved, or knows what is happening, I would be grateful for any ideas.

    Thank you.


    Keith, are you running etherchannel distributed on of your 6513?

  • Problem with 'systimestamp' and the CSV file


    I'm trying to insert data from a CSV file. One of the columns in my table must feed with oracle system date and this column's timestamp format.
    So here's my control file syntax:

    DATE_CREATION "systimestamp"
    FILLING filler1,
    filler2 FILLER,
    Filler3 FILLING,
    Filler4 FILLING,
    Filler5 FILLING,
    Filler78 FILLING,
    Filler79 FILLING,
    Filler80 FILLING,
    Filler81 FILLING

    I get this error:
    Sheet 1: Rejected - error on the CUSTOMERS table, column FILLER81.
    Column not found before the end of the logical record (use TRAILING NULLCOLS)

    It seems SQL * Loader see DATE_CREATION 'systimestamp' as a field of my CSV file.

    You know a syntax to define a column with systimestamp?

    Thank you!


    SYSTIMESTAMP does not seem to be supported (even in 11g) this way. If you read the [using SQL * Loader to generate input data |] you'll see that only CONSTANT, expression, RECNUM, SYSDATE and SEQUENCE are supported - that is to say SYSDATE is a special case.

    However, "SYSTIMESTAMP" is a perfectly good PHRASE. My example load historical prices from Yahoo finance.


    load data
    into table price_history append
    ( ticker char
    , trade_date date "dd/mm/yyyy"
    , open_price
    , high_price
    , low_price
    , close_price
    , volume integer
    , adj_close
    , update_ts expression "systimestamp"

    and data load very well.

    Compared with the DEFAULT value in the column definition:
    -Use the value DEFAULT if that's what you always (or almost always - you can always ignore it)
    -use * expression 'systimestamp' * in the SQL * Loader if control file varies according to the type of load. Or if you are not allowed to modify the table definition (for example, if it is the table of the provider).

  • connection printer MG7520 problems with password, and the new name of the router
