Controlling LUN queue depth throttling in VMware ESX / ESXi (1008113) with EVA4400

Hi,

I have a question about the kb Controlling LUN queue depth throttling in VMware ESX / ESXi (1008113).

 

I have to change these parameters on a HP EVA4400 storage because I found in vmkernel many messages of this type:

Looking in HP I found this article

I would like to know if these parameters can be changed with the virtual machines running or whether it is better to put the hosts in maintenace mode.

 

 

 

Thank You

The Queue Depth settings take effect immediately. You do not need to reboot the ESX/ESXi host. Hence, ideally virtual machines can be running while you implement the changes.

 

Hope this helps!!
