VTEP Shares on a vDS

Jump to solution

NSX-v.

I’m looking into shares on a vDS and assigning certain values to Mgmt., vMotion, iSCSI etc.  I can’t assign the share value to the VXLAN traffic type.  Does it use the Virtual Machine Traffic value?

Yes , that is my understanding . I have not tested this with NSX-V. However there is no difference in NSX-T as well. Flexibility is we can create NIOC profile from NSX manager itself and apply it to all transport nodes.

Yes, you can use VM shares for Edge/VXLAN traffic even though i tried to avoid it Smiley Wink .   If you have server profiles , better option would be to use NIOC+QOS which will guarantee the expected bandwidth.

How would I apply NIOC shares on the VXLAN VTEP traffic on hosts?

I will google the server profiles now, thank you.

Apply it on the respective port-groups like any other shares that we normally apply for virtual machine traffic.  You can check https://blogs.vmware.com/networkvirtualization/files/2014/02/VMware-NSX-on-Cisco-N7KUCS-Design-Guide...  (Page :11 match with your requirement)

That's great Sreec, thank you. 

I was reading https://blogs.vmware.com/networkvirtualization/files/2014/02/VMware-NSX-on-Cisco-N7KUCS-Design-Guide... and I'm interested in the change made on page 24.

You change the network traffic resource pool to the newly created "VXLAN VM Traffic".  What if I left it as "default"?  What network traffic resource pool would it use? Virtual Machine Traffic?
