Sizing for NSX-V VIB modules for distributed Logical Switching/FW/Routing requires per ESX host

Jump to solution

Hi all,

I am trying to find out how much capacity each NSX-V VIB module for
distributed Logical Switching/FW/Routing requires per ESX host.

We are assuming our new infra system would consume logical resources
up to maximum configurations for NSX-V (ESG:2,000, DLR:1,000, DLSW:10,000 etc).

Thus if the configuration reaches to limitation, just wanted to figure
out how much CPU/Memory need to be ensured separately from ESX OS and Guest VMs.

Any input would be grateful for me.

Sizing totally depends upon on the vSphere Design . You need to calculate current and future requirement and size it accordingly. You can't size the environment only based on NSX-V components (If it is a dedicated cluster it makes sense) . Just curious to know what kind of use cases you have as you since you updated you will reach maximum limitation ?

Dear Sreec,

Thank you very much for your input.

Our use case is to accommodate internal multitenancy service, whose number is approx. 1000 and each of them is to leverage 1-2 Edge/DLR, 2-4 VLANs, up to 10 VXLANs.
