L2 VPN and Egress Optimization

Jump to solution

I have a question regarding egress optimization. When using the NSX ESG to establish a L2 VPN (in order to stretch L2 subnets between sites), if egress optimization is used, the NSX ESG will act as a gateway for the VMs for which we would need to use the L2 VPN service. In that case, traffic would not cross the DLR for these VMs and instead all traffic would be directed to the NSX ESG instead. Hence, these VMs would use the NSX ESG both for East-West and North-South traffic (as well as connecting to VMs at remote sites through the L2 VPN). Am I correct in my assumptions? Smiley Happy

You are right,Egress optimization ensures traffic is routed by respective site local egress IP.
