No one invested in virtualization to have slow servers, but if you are ignoring this one important system maintenance practice, your VMs are likely running 25-40% slower than they should.
The smart VMware administrators follow the recommendations in the VMware documentation. VMware continues to recommend to “Defragment the file systems on all guests.” This appears under Disk I/O Performance Enhancement Advice at this link: https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-vSphere/7.0/com.vmware.vsphere.monitoring.doc/GUID-174326D5-238B-48CA-B030-02009E388523.html
VMware recognizes that guest defragmentation eliminates the bottlenecks in VM performance and throughput. Customer testing has shown defragmented VMs are 25-40% faster than fragmented VMs.
