I came across this technical paper called Best Practices for Performance Tuning of Latency-Sensitive Workloads in vSphere VMs
Abstract from the paper:
This white paper summarizes findings and recommends best practices to tune the different layers of an application’s environment for latency-sensitive workloads.
If you are about to virtualize low-latency workloads or simply looking at tuning your existing virtual environment for such workloads, this is the technical paper you need read!
I like the tabulated summary at the end of the technical paper and I have pasted here a copy. Very convenient checklist.
