Will there be a Whitepaper for Optimized Parameters?

Example from an other Test.

Vmware optimiert selber die Parameter für die VSAN. Können diese 1 zu1 für Nutanix übernommen werden ? Sogar Netzwerk Optimierung.

Increase the heap size for the vSphere network stack to 512MB. "esxcli system settings advanced set -o /Net/TcpipHeapMax -i 512". You can validate this setting using "esxcli system settings advanced list -o /Net/TcpipHeapmax" Allow VSAN to form 32-host clusters. "esxcli system settings advanced set -o /adv/CMMDS/goto11 1". Installed the Phase 18 LSI driver (mpt2sas version 18.00.00.00.1vmw) for the LSI storage controller. Configured BIOS Power Management (System Profile Settings) for ‘Performance’, (for example, all power saving features were disabled)
In order to better support large-scale workloads with high outstanding IO, VMware modified the boot time parameters for pvscsi to "vmw_pvscsi.cmd_per_lun=254 vmw_pvscsi.ring_pages=32″. Visit the VMware Knowledgebase for more details on this configuration. VMware applied a storage policy-based management setting of HostFailuresToTolerate=0 to the vmdks for this benchmark test.
Additionally, the disks were distributed across two PVSCSI controllers. The default driver for pvscsi was used (version 1.0.2.0-k) while the boot time parameters was modified for pvscsi to improve the support capability of high outstanding IO: "vmw_pvscsi.cmd_per_lun=254 vmw_pvscsi.ring_pages=32″
