    WAN Emulation at Distributed Switch

    anuragschandra Lurker

      Hi,

       

      I have a setup (Lab Environment) where i have 8 ESXi hosts on a VSphere Stretched Cluster .

       

      4 Hosts - Site1

      4 Hosts - Site 2

       

      1 Port - vmknic5 from each of these 8 ESXi hosts form a VDS Switch 1

      1 Port - vmknic6 from each of these 8 ESXi hosts form a VDS Switch 2

       

      VDS

       

      What i am wanting to do is simulate RTT of 10ms between the two sites via these two switches?

       

      I have looked at WANEm and Dummy cloud but am not sure how i could introduce latencies between these two sites via these 2 switches.

       

      Can i have a route setup so that any traffic via vmknic5 from hosts in site 1 and vmknic5 from hosts in Site 2 go via WAN Emulator or Dummy Net and the same thing for vmknic6?

       

      Please provide your inputs.

       

      Thanks,

      Anurag
