Performance Series | Episode 4, Troubleshooting Disk Bottlenecks. Performance Series.
In episode 4 we cover the first of the actual counter sets used to identify problems, and the methodology to do so. Identifying a disk bottleneck involves more than just latency counters, it also includes ruling out whether your server or PC was actually the culprit. So what we will do in this episode is load up a computer with a lot of disk activity, then additionally load up the hypervisor that runs that computer and compare the differences. Finally, we will do some process analysis and determine who the bad guy was.
