    Hi Kevin,

    Always enjoy by reading your publications – very informative and … brain cleansing.

    Christian Graversen’s request shows (the first in this list), that you are giving a presentations/seminars/etc from time to time. Is there any possibility to hear you online? Have you ever visited Russia? Those terrible territory populated by communists? (;-)). Interested in coming here?

    If interested, could we discuss the issue by phone/e-mail? My details are available from LinkedIn (

    Kind regards,

    Hello Kevin –
    First of all, thanks a lot for SLOB . We are using it extensively.
    We had strange SLOB results when running the test on a database running on VMWare. Database version:, storage – datastores, OS – RHEL 6.4. For some reason, number of write waits is always 0….
    I can send you the report, just not sure how to attach a file to the comment…

    Thanks again –
