These eBooks take the guess work out of running a busy infrastructure team.Written by an experienced vSphere Cloud Manager, each book in the series will cover a different topic. There’s years of insight offered by someone who worked through the difficult problems faced while growing a cluster of 30 hosts into a robust cloud with more than 600 ESXi hosts and nearly 7,000 virtual machines. It’s a book of insight.The second book in the series, “Why is my app running slow on VMware?” picks up where the first book, “VCP for Hire,” left off. It’s a dedicated guide for managers who are dealing with vSphere performance problems that are causing tier–one applications to run slow.Using a systematic diagnostic process of elimination, Joe takes you through a series of questions about the network, storage, vSphere, and VM stack in search of the root cause, or causes. Each list of questions is designed to narrow down the field of possibilities until the cause of the VM performance problem is found.In Why is My App Running Slow on VMware,” Joe covers four common problems that cause application slowness on virtual servers running on VMware vSphere.To set the right expectations, because the platform is so broad and can impact just about every type of hardware used for building infrastructure, it is not a deep technical how-to guide. But that said, it is a light at the end of the tunnel to point you in the right direction for understanding where to look to solve your application performance problems. If in fact you application problem is due to poor virtual server performance.Think Service First and let “Why is my App slow on VMware” be the first vSphere troubleshooting guide you turn to for help.
