Nutanix services: Xtrim – what it is and why it is needed

Xtrim is the service that is going to improve the performance of the cluster. If we look a bit deeper, it improves the write performance by periodically trimming the SSDs. In Nutanix all the disks are passed-through from the host to the CVM and the CVM is managing the disks, so the Xtrim service running on CVMs is doing the trimming of the physical SSDs.
