    ghettoVCB backup to NFS kills active network connections of VMs.

      Hi. I've seen this on two systems now. Both could be classified as live network streaming gateway devices (a Citrix NetScaler gateway, and just now a remote support tool that has quite a few clients connected to it).

       

      When the ghettoVCb backup to an NFS datastore is taking place, the streaming data connections grind to a halt.

       

      Could it be that the management interface (ESXi shell) has a higher priority for networking than the guests?


      The guests and management interface are all one/shared.


      Do you think dedicating a NIC that isn't the management-NIC to the guests (actually there's only one guest on this box anyway now) would solve the issue?
