I am looking for comparisons between the benefits and disadvantages of running HDLM compared to the native MPIO on Windows, AIX, Linux & VMWare.
For VMWare I have read that the default VM round robin policy should be used with native mpio.
HDLM on Win 2008/2012 use the Microsoft multipath driver but adds more load balancing options.
I have summarized the below as advantages:
- Detects sequential workloads
- Optimize port buffering
- Perform non-disruptive migrations
- Manage all paths centrally with HGLM
How does the native Windows, AIX and DMP on Linux compare?
Any feedback will be great.
