Hey…I’m leaving this here because I don’t see an email address anywhere. I was at your Tuning Images for VDI session at TechEd 2013 in New Orleans. I know you probably mentioned this at some point, but what would you suggest to use for page files on VDI machines? I see conflicting ideas from “the Google”. I’m thinking I should make it minimal, since disk IOPs are way slower than RAM and more detrimental to the performance of the whole cluster, but I’m also not going to want a rogue, memory leaking app to chew up all the physical RAM in the host.
Obviously, I can oversubscribe the hell out of the RAM on the host if I want, and let VMware/HyperV manage the actual usage on it’s own. Bubbles or whatever. It’s kind of scary to oversubscribe the host with desktop machines, though, since I don’t trust users.
If you have time, please gimme some thoughts on this! If not, thanks for the great session last summer anyway!
