7 Problems with Legacy Network Configuration Hyper-V Host vnic vnic vnic Management Live Migration Cluster VM

8 Server 2012 Introduces Converged Fabric Hyper-V Host vnic vnic vnic vnic vnic vnic 10Gb 10Gb 10Gb 10Gb

9 Benefits of Converged Fabric Hyper-V Host vnic vnic vnic vnic vnic vnic 10G 10G 10G 10G

10 Wait! Where s my 40Gbps of bandwidth?!?!? Hyper-V Host

11 NIC Teaming: LACP (Switch Dependent) & Address Hashing Hyper-V Host Data transfer to VM 7 vnic vnic vnic vnic vnic vnic 10G 10G 10G 10G

12 NIC Teaming: Switch Independent & Hyper-V Port Load Balancing Hyper-V Host vnic vnic vnic vnic vnic vnic 10G 10G 10G 10G

13 NIC Teaming: Server 2012 R2 Switch Independent & Dynamic Load Balancing Hyper-V Host Similar to Hyper-V port but outbound traffic flows are not limited to a single NIC. Inbound will still be determined by the teaming mode specified with the switch. vnic vnic vnic vnic vnic vnic 10G 10G 10G 10G

14 Demo: Building Converged Fabric with PowerShell

15 Converged Fabric Diagram Hyper-V Host vnic vnic vnic vnic vnic vnic 10Gb 10Gb 10Gb 10Gb

16 QoS Three ways to create rules Hyper-V Host vnic vnic vnic vnic vnic

17 What is the difference? QoS Enabled Virtual Switch Very simple, especially when using converged fabrics (all interfaces are vnics). Each rule is applied to a virtual NIC (VM or Management OS). You can define a default bucket for unspecified. QoS Packet Scheduler Used for creating per protocol rules handled by the Management OS. Data Center Bridging (DCB) DCB is handled by hardware. DCB offers the best performance. Requires DCB capable hardware.

18 QoS Packet Scheduler Built in Filters Workload Built-in Filter (PowerShell Parameter) Filter Implementation iscsi -iscsi Match TCP or UDP port 3260 NFS -NFS Match TCP or UDP port 2049 SMB -SMB Match TCP or UDP port 445 Live Migration -LiveMigration Match TCP port 660 Wild Card -Default Any traffic that is not otherwise classified

19 Hyper-V QoS (Virtual Switch) > Omit this slide! I will just talk about it Guarantee a minimum level of service to a vnic, protocol, or an IP port Bits per second-based rules Gives exact speed but what if VMs are moved to host with different speed NICs? Weight-based rules More flexible as its based on a share of bandwidth with no consideration of actual speed Minimum Bandwidth Guarantee a minimum share of the host s bandwidth to a vnic or protocol Maximum Bandwidth Limit the bandwidth consumption of a vnic or protocol The most flexible and common option is to implement Minimum- Bandwidth rules based on Weight. This solution makes no assumptions about hardware capacity and it is elastic allowing vnics and protocols to exceed the minimum guarantee when there is not bandwidth contention.

20 QoS Guaranteeing a % of Bandwidth Live Migration vnic Management vnic Cluster vnic Unspecified 35 % Cluster 40% Management 5% Live Migration 20%

21 QoS Example Configuration # Apply a default weight to the vswitch (any vnic which is unspecified will fall into this bucket) Set-VMSwitch Converged-vSwitch -DefaultFlowMinimumBandwidthWeight 35 # Assign a weight to Management OS vnics Set-VMNetworkAdapter -ManagementOS -Name "Cluster" - MinimumBandwidthWeight 40 Set-VMNetworkAdapter -ManagementOS -Name "LiveMigration" - MinimumBandwidthWeight 20 Set-VMNetworkAdapter -ManagementOS -Name "Management" - MinimumBandwidthWeight 5 # Calculate the percentage of bandwidth based on your specified weights Get-VMNetworkAdapter -ManagementOS -Name * ft Name, BandwidthPercentage, IsManagementOS -AutoSize

22 QoS Setting a Maximum Bandwidth Limitation

24 Converged Fabric / iscsi Fault Domains Hyper-V Host vnic vnic vnic vnic vnic vnic vnic 10G 10G 10G 10G Storage Controller A Storage Controller B

25 Testing Fabric Test throughput Use consume.exe to consume the memory on a VM with 64GB of ram > Then Live Migrate the VM! Use iperf to test the throughput from vnic to vnic Notice the throughput difference on a Live Migration when Jumbo Frames are not configured Use Jumbo Frames! Test disk throughput with SQL-IO Verify you have Jumbo Frames configured end to end ping l 8000 f Failing Components Network interfaces Switches Storage connectivity All of the above during throughput tests

26 Real World Testing Example with SQLIO Unbalanced iscsi Interface utilization Balanced iscsi Interface utilization
