How does abs work with CVMs?

When I connect VM to the ABS 

 

Is it seperate iSCSI sessions to all CVM (load balance I/O path) or

connect  to only 1 CVM (1 active and another standby I/O path)

 

I wonder about performance between multi-vdisk (by hypervisor) vs. VG (by ABS) .

 

thank you

Re: How does abs work with CVMs?

you will need to use data services IP as portal for your CVM
it will connect to only 1 CVM (active standby mode)

does multi-vdisk (by hypervisor) mean non-Nutanix ?

Hi bezeddin

 

multi-vdisk (by hypervisor) mean "Add multiple vDisk to VMs" (Nutanix System)

 

Thank you

Re: How does abs work with CVMs?

in abs vdisk can be referred as LUN (old way)
you can have multiple vdisks per VG (up to 32)

how would you compare multiple vdisks to VM running on Nutanix vs VM running on other physical utilizing ABS on Nutanix ?

Hi @komdet -- were you able to find your way with ABS or do you need any help?

This covers all of the semantics in detail: http://nutanixbible.com/#anchor-block-services-81

 

Specifically look at the 'Multi-Pathing' section
