    low vmotion speed transfer between esxi hosts

    Sebasian Lurker

      Hello,

      Can anyone help me with the following problem.

      In VmWare Vsphere the migration of only the virtual machine (without datastore migration) between the esxi hosts reaches a maximum of 120000 Kbps. It does not matter if I migrate

      one machine or many. Network monitor chart during migration on the assigned vmotion tab shows constans 120000 Kbps.

      I feel like the card was set to 100Mb, and it is not (it is 1Gbps)

      Hosts are equipped with 1Gb and esxi cards see vmnic 1000 Full Duplex. As for hardware, I have servers in the chassis blade. There are 1Gb switches.

      Where to find the reason?

       

      Thank you in advance,

          Can you confirm that it is Kbps (kilo bit per second) rather than KBps (kilo byte per second)?

          Did you also check the vMotion speed from the command line using esxtop?

            Thank You for paying attention to these dependencies. I have seen bad on the VmWare documentation. When started esxtop tools actually shows me a speed about 890 [MbTX/s] (Megabits per second).

            So, in the Vcenter Appliance -hosts->performance->network->Usage the measurement is presented in the KiloByte unit per second and for the above measurement it was about 120000 KBps, not how I interpreted Kbps earlier.

            I already understand my mistake

             

            Thank You very much.
