- You can run Vdbench with the '-s' (simulate) option. It will do all the parsing, and a couple of quick checks, but it will not open any devices.
- I usually do a quick override of the elapsed time by running with '-e5 -i1', just running each Run Definition for five seconds.
- To 'quickly' select a number of available devices run './vdbench sds' (Solaris and Linux). This shows you the devices that are available and you decide which ones to use. I have had several requests to allow for wildcarding in the lun= parameter, but I have and always will refuse to do this. Too dangerous.
"The biggest challenge for me is to be able to support the wide variety of options and incantations of Vdbench"
