Appendix B. Performance Measurements

In this article

    This appendix provides measurement results for a series of performance tests. Every test was performed for a number of ESXi hosts to measure resource consumption on Veeam ONE Server and Microsoft SQL Server during data collection.

    The following table provides characteristics of host disks used during the tests:
