poor Performance - High Wait Time on VMWare Virtual Machine
we tried to migrate an physical Filemaker Server 11 running on a 8 CPU physical Server on a new Virtual Machine with the following Specs:
Microsoft Windows 2008 R2 Standard 6 GB Ram 4 CPUs (2,4 GHz)
When we tried to migrate the Filemaker Server 11 with it's databases to the new virtual Machine, we had a very poor performance of the System with an average CPU usage of only 20%. Other OS Functions like File Transfer and Pings were fast as usual. As you can see on the image there are no problems with the E/A (Harddisk).
There are no errors on the system log and we adapted all hints of filemaker for a good system performance.
