A general system error occured.The migration was cancelled because the amount of changing memory for vm was greater than the available network bandwidth.

Tried to migrate vcenter vm from one host to another for vcloud director agent to be installed in the host where vcenter is a vm.The above mentioned error occurred.What could be the possible reason.

The reason could be high network/IO intensive operations are going on your VC VM . When we trigger vMotion, vMotion keeps the track of changed memory pages in order to be consistent at destination host. If amount of memory getting changed is very frequently & greater than the available network bandwidth. vMotion will not get enough bandwidth to copy the changed memory pages at the destination host. Hence, vMotion fails.


Award points if you it is useful.
