Windows 10: Anniversary update and VMware - really HORRIBLE I/O performance
Anniversary update and VMware - really HORRIBLE I/O performance
I've noticed that I/O performance on VM's is really poor when using VMWARE with Anniversary update - makes no difference whether the VM is a LINUX or WINDOWS VM if running on the same Host.
For example USB 3 transfers with HDD's -- on 1511 (HOST) transfer rate on the VM not stellar but adequate -- around 110 - 140 mib/s on average for a whole slew of files say around 500 GB worth as a good test.
Same rate on build 1606(HOST) with the same HDD attached to the same USB3 port on the VM transfer rate around 28 - 33 mib/s. !! About USB 2 speed - even a bit slow for that.
I'd updated VMware tools and HOST OS and VM are running on an SSD.
Afraid that's just no good - especially as I'm using the VM as a media server - so I've reverted back to build 1511 until this mess is sorted out.
I'm going to investigate if the same thing happens with HYPER-V.
I just downloaded and installed the Windows 10 Anniversary Update yesterday and so far I have noticed some changes in my computer that I was not aware of before the update.

I/O performance is HIDEOUS when using a VM or external USB 3 device --I am experiencing huge Buffer refreshes in Plex media server when serving movies either from a VM running PLEX Media server or using external USB3 device on Windows.
I am downloading the update manually. Have others had the same issue with windows update not showing the update?
I'm not sure my WU is working because of this.
iv noticed the las couple days they have done some updates to outlook.com why do they mess with what works fine,now it is way slower and the interface is pink in colour they need to leave what works fine alone.:mad:
The "Performance & Maintenance" sub-forum is missing and I was just curious how other systems perform.
