    Limited throughput when accessing host network or outside world

    BBonifield Lurker

      I have a new VMWare ESXi install with two CentOS VMs.  VMWare tools are installed on both VMs, and I don't get any packet loss when I ping either of the guest VMs from a stand-alone machine on the network.  However, the throughput from the guests to the rest of the true network or the outside world is extremely limited.  At some points, it'll drop as low as 10K/s.  I can transfer files between the two guest VMs at high speeds (~5MB/s).  Also, I plugged a laptop into the same switch port with the same network configuration, and it didn't have throughput issues.  Suggestions?  I'm at a loss here.
