Hands On Labs

Lastly, don’t miss the new 2017 Performance focused Hands-On-Labs.

This Performance lab is always extremely popular and has been rebuilt to include topics such as using benchmark tools like DVD Store and Weathervane, rightsizing your virtual machines, how power policy affect performance and basic troubleshooting of CPU, MEM, storage and Network dimensions. With over 5 hours of content, you’ll need to take this lab several times.

This challenge format lab, in which you take the lead and diagnose and fix various vSphere issues, includes new scenarios around vNUMA, Latency Sensitivity, Poor Performance and Resource Pools. This is great way to experience some off the most common performance issues and how to resolve them in a fun and prescriptive way.

2017 was a banner year for the Extreme Performance Series.  Enjoy the new content and see you at VMworld 2018.
