migration was canceled because the amount of changing memory for the virtual machine was greater than the available network bandwidth

Hi Anyone has seen this error

The migration was canceled because the amount of changing memory for the virtual machine was greater than the available network bandwidth. Attempt the migration again when the virtual machine is not as busy or more network bandwidth is available.

Failed to start the virtual machine.

Module Migrate power on failed.

vMotion migration [168378376:1391062685293888] failed reading stream completion: Connection closed by remote host, possibly due to timeout

Its a vcops analytic vm move with drs

Thanks

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.

It is better if you migrate this VM in NON-peak hours.
