Identifying & Relieving the Pain Points of Storage vMotion (As Well as How to Solve Those VMware Monitoring Woes)


Storage vMotion allows you to migrate a virtual machine’s entire datastore off of one storage system and into another one. It involves physically moving the entire home directory (including log, swap, config, and snapshots) to another storage device, and includes a quick suspension of the virtual machine, which is completely transparent to the user.

The time it takes to transfer the entire datastore of the virtual machine from one storage system to the other varies, and it can lead to some performance issues with the applications that happen to be running. Storage vMotion has been a part of VMware since version 3, though it began as a mere command line utility, allowing you to upgrade VMFS.
