bridged network, physical connection shows 2.5Gb, windows server 2022 vm only shows 1Gb. Does vmware workstation pro support higher than 1gb network connections for vm's?
I suppose the guest os labeling the 2.5gb connection as 1gb is a separate issue, but performance wise:
EP1 Vmware workstation pro host 2.5Gb Nic
EP2 Guest vm
EP3 Hyper-V vm 10Gb Nic
file copy of ~8gb iso file
Host to 10Gb server:
Host to Guest:
EP1->EP2 ~200MB rate
EP2->EP1 ~180MB rate
Guest to 10Gb server:
Seems like a performance hit from host to guest, and a larger hit from 3rd party to host to guest. Is that to be expected or is there a configuration that could be modified? CPU on host is i9 12900k
You could try switching to the vmxnet3 adapter although you will get a performance hit and but likely will be better than the default.
Edit the vmx file and change the virtualdev from e1000/e1000e (the default depends on the guest OS) to vmxnet3
