How to Diagnose Disk I/O Errors on a Virtual LoadMaster

Under some circumstances, disk I/O errors can appear in the system log files of a Virtual LoadMaster. These logs are more typical to a Hardware LoadMaster with an SSD disk that has failed. On a Virtual LoadMaster, it could indicate a potential corruption of the virtual disk assigned to the virtual machine, or possibly an issue relating to a residing physical disk on the host hypervisor.

Here is a sample of the disk I/O logs that may be visible on a Virtual LoadMaster:
