VMware Storage Policy Based Management (SPBM) is a storage policy framework that helps administrators match VM workload requirements against storage capabilities. SPBM runs as an independent service in the vCenter Server. We recently released a white paper that covers SPBM performance in two sections.
1: Performance comparison of vCenter 6.5 vs. vCenter 6.0 U3
In the first section, we cover performance improvements of SPBM in vCenter 6.5 over vCenter 6.0 U3. Here is a chart from the white paper showing improvement in one of the SPBM workflows.
2: Scaling API Latency for vCenter 6.5
In the next section, we cover scaling trends of SPBM APIs in vCenter 6.5. To determine scaling patterns, we passed an increasing number of entities to these APIs as input. The charts are plotted for number of entities against the time it took to complete the task. Below is one such chart from the whitepaper.
