I have shared a post about whats new with vSAN 6.6.1 but i have not mentioned due to new features what will happen to old . Recently I was looking in to proactive test feature and i was able to find only one test , VM creation test . In the previous version we have other tests also and it is missing on vSphere 6.5 , let discuss about why it is missing .
vSphere 6.5 with vSAN
vSphere 6.0 with vSAN
Multicast Performance Test
With vSAN 6.6.1 multicast has been removed and unicast came as new feature , since mulicast has been removed so the test will be removed by default and unicast is running in vSAN test won’t show .
Storage Performance Test
VMware felt that use of any third party tools for doing bench mark may provide incorrect details . So VMware decided to use HCI Bench is the suitable solution for doing benchmark . And this is confirms that perf benchmark feature in the Proactive Tests section is depreciated .
