Performance impact when using VMware snapshots It is certainly not unheared of – “When I delete a snapshot from a VM, the thing totally freezes!“. The strange thing is, some customers have these issues, others don’t (or are not aware of it). So what really DOES happen when you clean out a snapshot? Test Setup So how do we test performance impact on storage while ruling out external factors? Windows 2003-R2-SP2 VM (32 bit);Single vCPU;2048 MB memory;5 Gbyte boot drive as an independent disk on a SAN LUN;VM configuration and 4 GByte performance-measurement-disk on local storage (10K disks RAID1);IOmeter (version 2006.07.27) installed;Configure perfmon to measure both reads and writes per second from PhysicalDisk with a 20 second interval;Build these VMs on both an ESX3.5 and vSphere server to see any differences. Note that the VM configs were also placed on local storage. IOmeter was setup for a total of two tests. Table 1: IOmeter setup How VMware snapshotting works But who ever reverts snapshots on a regular basis? Conclusion

Beyond the Talking Points: The Current Refugee Crisis | Go-Before Grace Last week I had the wonderful opportunity to be the judge of a high school debate competition. Not surprisingly one of the debate topics centered around “the current refugee crisis.” Unfortunately I only got to listen to one such debate. Those arguing in favor of accepting refugees did an okay job at listing out several economists, historians and anthropologists who all argue that accepting refugees will most likely improve a country’s living standards over a long term period of time (up to 1oo years!). Those arguing against it did a fascinating job of listing out everything that is happening today. They won the debate. Yet I remain in absolute favor of open borders worldwide, starting with our own. The narrative of Scripture leaves little room for gray when it comes to feeding, clothing and accepting foreigners, even dangerous ones. You can look at the prologue to the 10 Commandments where God says, “I am the Lord your God who brought you out of Egypt.” At least that’s my two cents.

Appalachian Awakening Sees Mass Salvations in West Virginia Join us on our podcast each weekday for an interesting story, well told, from Charisma News. Listen at Students who have walked the halls of Mingo Central the last couple years say the West Virginian high school has a different feel these days. Prayer has mostly replaced profanity in the hallways. "The Lord has swept through this area," said Aerianna McClanahan, a junior who is part of the Mingo Central prayer club. Today, on the National Day of Prayer, many southern West Virginians plan to stoke the flames of their regional revival by standing with Franklin Graham during his Decision America Tour stop in Charleston. "We know this [revival] was birthed in prayer so we know the only way for it to continue is to stay in prayer," youth pastor Katie Endicott said. An 'Appalachian Awakening' Many credit a Tennessean evangelist, who has conducted several revival services during the last month in Mingo County, for triggering change. A Generation Rising Up
