Comparing ESXi 4.1 and ESXi 5.0 Scaling Performance

Comparing ESXi 4.1 and ESXi 5.0 Scaling Performance

In previous articles on VROOM! we used VMmark 2 to investigate the effects of altering a single hardware component, such as a storage array or server model, in a vSphere cluster. In contrast to these earlier studies, we now examine the effects of upgrading the hosts’ software from ESXi 4.1 to ESXi 5.0 on the performance of a VMmark 2 cluster.

vSphere 5 includes many new features and virtual machine enhancements, the details of which can be found here. To the IT professional weighing the costs and benefits of upgrading their existing infrastructure to vSphere 5, an often important question is whether ESXi 5.0 can outperform ESXi 4.1 in the same environment. VMmark 2 is an ideal tool for answering this question with measurable results. We used VMmark 2.1.1 to see how ESXi 5.0 stacked up to ESXi 4.1 on an identically configured cluster.

VMmark 2 is a multi-host virtualization benchmark that models application performance as well as the effects of common infrastructure operations such as vMotion, Storage vMotion, and virtual machine deployments. Each VMmark tile contains a set of VMs running diverse application workloads as a unit of load. VMmark 2 scores are computed as a weighted average of application workload throughput and infrastructure operation throughput. For more details, see the overview, release notes for VMmark 2.1, and for 2.1.1.

Testing Methodology

All VMmark 2 tests were conducted on a cluster of four identically configured entry-level Dell Power Edge R310 servers. To determine the impact of the vSphere 5 environment on performance, a series of tests was conducted with these hosts running ESXi 4.1, then with ESXi 5.0. In addition, for the vSphere 5 environment, the virtual machine hardware and VMware Tools were upgraded on all workload VMs, and LUNs were reformatted as VMFS5. All other components in the environment remained unchanged during testing.

Systems Under Test: Four Dell PowerEdge R310 Servers
CPUs: One Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® X3460 @ 2.8 GHz, hyper-threading enabled per server
Memory: 32GB DDR3 ECC @ 800 MHz per server
Storage Array: EMC VNX5500
Hypervisors under test:
     VMware ESXi 4.1
     VMware ESXi 5.0
Virtualization Management: VMware vCenter Server 5.0
VMmark version: 2.1.1


To characterize cluster performance at multiple load levels, we increased the number of tiles until the cluster reached saturation, defined as when the run failed to meet Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. Scaling out the number of tiles until saturation allows us to determine the maximum VMmark 2 load the cluster could support and to compare the ESXi 4.1 and ESXi 5.0 configurations at each level of load.

The graph below shows the results of the VMmark 2 testing as described above with identically configured clusters running ESXi 4.1 and ESXi 5.0. All data points are the mean of three tests in each configuration. 


The ESXi 4.1 cluster reached saturation at 3 tiles, but ESXi 5.0 was able to support 4 tiles while still meeting workload Quality of Service requirements. The ESXi 5.0 cluster also outperformed ESXi 4.1 by 3% and 4% on the two and three-tile runs, respectively. Differences in CPU utilization were negligible. The results show that, in an equivalent environment, vSphere 5 handled greater load than ESXi 4.1 before reaching saturation, and showed increased performance at lower levels of load as well. At saturation, vSphere 5 showed a 22% increase in overall VMmark 2 scores over ESXi 4.1. In this cluster, vSphere 5 supported 33% more VMs and twice the number of infrastructure operations while meeting Quality of Service requirements.

VMmark 2 scores are based on application and infrastructure workload throughput, while application latency reflects Quality of Service. For the Mail Server, Olio, and DVD Store 2 workloads, latency is defined as the application’s response time. The completion time for vMotion, Storage vMotion, and VM Deploy is used as the latency measurement for the infrastructure operations. Latency can be very informative about the functioning of the environment and how the cluster as a whole performs under increasing loads. Examining latency at a 3-tile load, as seen in the figure below, reveals significant differences between the hypervisor versions. Latencies were normalized to the ESXi 4.1 results.


We saw decreases in latency for all VMmark 2 workloads with vSphere 5. The latency decreases were most striking in Olio, Storage vMotion, and DVD Store 2, with decreases of 20%, 19%, and 15%, respectively. These improvements to vMotion and Storage vMotion are consistent with publicized improvements in vMotion and Storage vMotion latency for vSphere 5 (details here).

A VMmark 2 run passes when all of its application QoS metrics, or latencies, remain below a specified threshold. These decreases in latency with ESXi 5.0 are directly related to why ESXi 5.0 was able to support an additional tile relative to ESXi 4.1.

Our comparison has shown that upgrading an ESXi 4.1 cluster to vSphere 5 had two high-level effects on performance. The vSphere 5 cluster supported 33% more VMs at saturation than the ESXi 4.1 cluster, and it also exhibited improved latency and throughput at lower levels of load, showing that ESXi 5.0 does outperform ESXi 4.1.

20.03.2008 Peter Penz: Pictures have Frames
When comparing Dolphin with other file managers like the Vista Explorer or Finder I always was jealous because of the nice frames they provided for picture previews. I initially thought providing frames for pictures in Dolphin can wait until KDE 4.2, as there are more important issues to solve.But as soon I've added this feature to my TODO-list, I could not get this task out of my head... I recognized that obviously all nice pictures of this world seem to have frames: whether you go to an exhibition or take a look on a newspaper - nearly everywhere pictures have frames.So Dolphin has now frame...

06.04.2008 Tom Albers: Dutch Joomla!-Days.
Today I went to Utrecht where the Dutch Joomla!-days took place. I was quite surprized by the size of the event, it was three times as big as I expected, with 5 parallel sessions and a lot of international core-developers. It was interesting in more than one way. During some of the presentation some bits of the release process were presented, basically they want to do a 4-6 month cycle, 2,5 months of development and 1,5 month of testing, documenting and releasing. Of course I could not resist in constantly comparing the stuff they do with how we do it within KDE. I'm interested in one particul...
12.12.2013 A brief history of Dolphin’s performance and memory usage
Since I took over Dolphin’s maintainership almost a year and a half ago, we have not only fixed lots of bugs and improved many details which make Dolphin more pleasant to use, but also made quite a few changes under the hood to make Dolphin faster and less memory-hungry. The other day, I compiled a few different Dolphin versions and ran some benchmarks to see how much has changed during the past 18 months. The most straightforward way to get an idea of an application’s performance is to see how it can handle a large amount of data, so I created 100,000 empty files in a new director...

07.12.2009 Cyrille Berger: Discussing Krita, digital painting with David Revoy
For the next releases of Krita, we decided to pick up a specific artist, with a specific work flow, and to implement and fix the issue that he needs. For 2.2 (and probably 2.3), we have chosen David Revoy who has come recently to fame for his involvement in the durian project of the Blender project. Since he lives in Toulouse, and since I still live in Toulouse for the next two weeks, we felt it was a good opportunity to met and to talk about what is Krita, and to get a feel of what he needs. On Tuesday, after work, I went to his apartment. First he showed me a bit what he needs, especially in...
10.03.2010 Lubos Lunak (llunak): On benchmarks
Do you know this one? Phoronix tested md5sums of ISO images of distributions. The winner was openSUSE, scoring e29311f6f1bf1af907f9ef9f44b8328b, which gave it a noticeable lead before second Slackware (b026324c6904b2a9cb4b88d6d61c81d1), which is quite closely followed by Fedora (9ffbf43126e33be52cd2bf7e01d627f9) and Debian (9ae0ea9e3c9c6e1b9b6252c8395efdc1). The difference between these two distributions, as you can see, is only very small. Ubuntu completely flopped in this test, achieving only 1dcca23355272056f04fe8bf20edfce0, which is surprising, especially considering that its previous rele...
08.04.2010 Adenilson Cavalcanti (Savago): Lies, big fat lies and benchmarks
There is the old saying, ‘there are lies, big fat lies and there are benchmarks’, but after my previous post about the jsanim, it was time to try to measure how good or bad the javascript based animations are when comparing it against Plasma::Animations (written in C++). == what to measure? == The first task was to have a meaningful number and frames per second (FPS) sounds like a good idea. The only issue is that QGraphicsView will only update parts in the scene that need redrawing (besides it seems that there is not an easy way to access the draw events without subclassing). My s...
26.04.2010 Robin Burchell (w00t): Every time you scale a pixmap, God kills a kitten.
I've had a fun weekend.Carsten Munk, of Mer and other fame got me interested in insane schemes (once again): this time playing around with libdui (or libmeegotouch, as it is now apparently known), as we had repeatedly heard from many sources that it relied on GL, which meant that it couldn't be used with devices that require software rendering. Having found the -software flag to widgetsgallery, and poked around the source of DUI in the past, I thought this was a bit of a funny claim to make, until we actually used it and found out how horribly slow it was. Maybe they had a point?Why ...
