vSANのデザインとサイジング - メモリオーバーヘッドに関する考慮点

VMware Japan Cloud Infrastructure Blog

今週はEMEAで開催されるテックサミットに参加するためベルリンに来ています。このイベントはEMEAのフィールドの皆さんのためのイベントです。私は、vSANのデザインとサイジングを含むいくつかのセッションを担当しました。そのセッションの一部では、トピックとしてvSAN環境でのメモリ消費について取り上げました。過去には、こちらのブログでも触れました通り、ディスクグループ構成によるホストのメモリ要件についてのみお話しをしてきました。例えば、vSANの最大構成時(ホスト毎に最大5つのディスクグループ、各ディスクグループには最大7台のディスクを割り当て可能)には、ホストのメモリを最低でも32GB消費します。しかし、これはvSANのみが消費するのではなく、ワークロードを実行するために消費されるのかもしれません。その値は構成の上限としてお考えください。上の過去のブログで触れたように、もしホストが32GB以下のメモリしか搭載していない場合は、ホスト上で作成されるディスクグループの数を減らす必要があります。 私の知っている限り、何がvSANクラスタ上のメモリ消費の一因となるのかについて、情報として共有されていませんでした。このブログで、その部分について説明をしていきたいと思います。 [Update] KB2113954でも、vSAN環境でのメモリ消費について触れられています。 vSAN環境のメモリ消費を理解するために、以下の方程式が使われます。 ・BaseConsumption:ESXiホスト毎で、vSANによって消費される固定のメモリ量。この値は現在は3GBです。このメモリは、vSANのディレクトリ情報、ホスト毎のメタデータ、メモリキャッシュを格納するために使われます。vSANクラスタが16ノードを超える場合は、BaseConsumptionの値は300MB増えて、3.3GBとなります。 ・NumDiskGroups:ホスト毎のディスクグループ数。1から5の範囲で設定可能です。 ・DiskGroupBaseConsumption:ホストの個々のディスクグループによって消費される固定のメモリ量。この値は現在500MBです。このメモリは、主にディスクグループ毎の操作の際に使われます。 ・SSDMemOverheadPerGB:SSDの各GB毎に割り当てられた固定のメモ
