      Question :

      Good day!  I would like to better understand the technical side of OVF exports; specifically which vmkernel service is used, where the export files are staged, and what resources are impacted during the export.  Additionally, what is the expected behavior when multiple exports are initiated from the same vCenter server?  Last, are there ways to optimize the OVF export process for large VMs with multiple disks?   Thank you in advance!
