    5. Differences Hyper-V vs. Virtual Server 2005 1 2 3

    6. BizTalk Virtualization Licensing • License required for each physical processor • License for each virtual processor in each virtual operating system • Exception: BizTalk Enterprise Edition • License for the number of physical processors in the server • Enables unlimited virtual processors • http://www.microsoft.com/biztalk/en/us/pricing-licensing-faq.aspx

    7. Hyper-V Supportability Overview • BizTalk Server 2004/2006/2006 R2 fully supported • http://support.microsoft.com/kb/842301 • SQL Server 2005 provides commercially reasonable support • BizTalk Server 2009 will provide full Hyper-V support • SQL Server 2008 will provide full Hyper-V support

    8. Hyper-V Performance Overview • Our results indicate that performance is good • Virtual processors scale well • Storage design should be considered carefully • Hyper-V provides more pieces to monitor: • Performance counters • xPerf/ETW should be used for performance analysis

    9. Session Agenda • Hyper-V Overview • BizTalk Server Virtualization Assessment • Scenarios & Results • Hyper-V Performance Analysis • Lessons Learned • Reference guidance • BizTalk Server 2006 R2 Hyper-V Guide

    10. Scenario 1: Physical to Virtual Comparison 1 2

    11. Scenario 1: Results 2 • Throughput 75% in Virtual environment • Latency 20-30% less in Virtual environment 1 4 3

    12. Scenario 2: Multiple VMs 1 2

    13. Throughput 75% in virtual environment Ratio of logical to virtual processors affects throughput Scenario 2: Results 4 3 2 1

    14. Scenario 3: Virtual SQL 1 2

    15. Almost identical performance Virtual processors scale for SQL Scenario 3: Results 2 1

    16. Scenario 4: Consolidated 1 2 3

    17. Scenario 4: Results 1 2 3

    18. Scenario 4: Results (cont.) 1 2 3

    19. Scenario 4: Results (cont.) • ~80% of the throughput relative to when the virtual BizTalk Server and SQL Server machines were hosted on separate hardware • ~10% overhead of running both groups simultaneously • Networking performs well • Running two groups only placed ~40% CPU load on the physical server • Adding additional virtual machines increases load on Hyper-Visor

    20. Session Agenda • Hyper-V Overview • BizTalk Server Virtualization Assessment • Scenarios & Results • Hyper-V Performance Analysis • Lessons Learned • Reference guidance • BizTalk Server 2006 R2 Hyper-V Guide

    21. Hyper-V Processor Utilization % Processor Time performance counters on the root partition are not accurate. Use the % Guest Run Time and % Total Run Time counters Virtual BizTalk Virtual BizTalk Root Partition (physical host) % Processor Time % Processor Time 3 1 100% 100% 100% 100% 4 Root Partition % Processor Time 2% 5% 4% 3% 2 \Hyper-V Hypervisor Logical Processor(*)\% Guest Run Time 90% 90% 90% 90% 5 \Hyper-V Hypervisor Logical Processor(*)\% Total Run Time 95% 95% 95% 95%

    24. Session Agenda • Hyper-V Overview • BizTalk Server Virtualization Assessment • Scenarios & Results • Hyper-V Performance Analysis • Lessons Learned • Reference guidance • BizTalk Server 2006 R2 Hyper-V Guide

    25. Processor Lessons Learned • % Processor Time on the Host does not measure physical processors • For high processor usage: • Most Efficient: 1:1 Logical to Virtual Processors • Better Performing, Less Efficient: 2:1 Logical to Virtual Mapping of Processors

    26. Processor Lessons Learned • To measure Guest processors: • \Hyper-V Hypervisor Virtual Processor(*)\% Guest Run Time • \Hyper-V Hypervisor Virtual Processor(*)\% Total Run Time • To measure Physical processors: • \Hyper-V Hypervisor Logical Processor(*)\% Total Run Time • To measure Host processors: • \Hyper-V Hypervisor Root Virtual Processor(*)\% Total Run Time

    27. Disk Lessons Learned • For VHDs use: • <RootPartition>\Logical Disk(*)\Avg. sec/Read • <RootPartition>\Logical Disk(*)\Avg. sec/Write • <Guest>\Logical Disk(*)\Avg. sec/Read • <Guest>\Logical Disk(*)\Avg. sec/Write • For PassThrough Disk Analysis use: • “Hyper-V Virtual Storage Device” counters • xPerf Tool http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd871252.aspx

    28. Pass-Through Disk Perf * Other factors such as SAN performance could have been a factor

    29. Disk Lessons Learned • Use PassThrough disks for high disk I/O: • BizTalk MessageBox Database • BizTalk Tracking Database • BizTalk File Adapter • %temp directory if BizTalk is streaming large files

    30. Memory Lessons Learned • Virtual machines require non-paged memory (physical memory) • Ensure you have enough physical memory on both the host and guest computers • Use Traditional Counters: • <RootPartition>\Memory\Available Mbytes • <Guest>\Memory\Available Mbytes • <RootPartition>\Memory\Pages/sec • <Guest>\Memory\Pages/sec

    31. Network Lessons Learned • For high network I/O: • Use a 1:1 mapping of physical to virtual network adapters • For measuring network adapters use: • <RootPartition>\Network Interface • Bytes Total Per Second • Output Queue Length • <RootPartition>\Hyper-V Virtual Network Adapter • Bytes Per Second • <RootPartition>\Hyper-V Virtual Switch

    32. Perf Analysis Tools • Performance Monitor • Performance Analysis of Logs (PAL) tool • http://www.codeplex.com/PAL • xPerf from the Win2008 SDK • http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/system/sysperf/perftools.mspx • IOMeter • http://www.iometer.org/

    33. Perf Analysis Tools (cont) • Visual Studio Command Line Profiler • http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=105797 • BizTalk Artifact Duration Aggregations • http://blogs.technet.com/clint_huffman/archive/2008/05/06/biztalk-artifact-duration-aggregations.aspx

    34. BizTalk Hyper-V Summary • Fundamental BizTalk design decisions have not changed • Performance or efficiency driven • To maximize performance use Fixed VHD not Dynamic or Differencing disks • >1:1 Virtual:Logical processors can degrade performance • Pass-through for High I/O • BizTalk – file receive locations, %temp folder • SQL Server – System and User Databases • Hyper-V Planning and Deployment Guide • http://download.microsoft.com/download/8/1/5/81556693-1f05-494a-8d45-cdeeb6d735e0/HyperV_Deploy.doc
