info about vxlan and geneve over site2site vpn

hi to all,

i have a doubt, maybe is just a think i don't grasp, about vxlan/geneve.

suppose i have 2 sites, with two vcenter, each uses nsx-v/t, so far so good.

now, i want to inter-connect the 2 dc using a vpn site2site over internet, and route the two nsx edge traffic over it, to allow to nsx to "extend and view" to the other side.

when cames in play the mtu max 1600/1700 byte problem? vpn over internet i suppose will be fragmentated, or i am wrong?

thank you.

Yes, it will be fragmented, but this has a performance hit that needs to be taken in account. See this kb: VMware Knowledge Base
