    NSX data flow

      I have a few questions regarding this diagram that I hope someone can answer.




      When the Controllers communicate with the ESXi hosts is it to the vmk0 (Mgmt) interface or to the vmkX (VTEP) interface on the hosts?


      I'm assuming it's to the vmk0 (Mgmt) interface and if that is the case is there ANY control plane communication between the vmkX (VTEP) interface on the hosts and any NSX components (Manager, Controller, Edge etc.)?


      Additionally is it only VTEP to VTEP communication for the data plane?
