Need to get more through put between esx4i and physical system
Posted on 2010-09-20
I have an ESX4i 4.1 server setup. I'm running a Win7 VM off the local drive. I have 4 NICs setup as teaming for load balancing.
I have another physical system running Win7 64bit with a raid 5 config. I have 4nics in this system setup as intel teaming for loading balancing.
Now I copy ripped blurays back and forth. They are in the range of 30gb to 45gb. So I'm looking to get eh best through put possible.
Right now when I copy I get about 66MB /sec. Now I get that weather the ESX server has 1 nic, or nics teamed. Why is that. Should I get more through put?
How can I increase the through put. I figured with 4 nics teamed on each system, this should be faster. The nics are all running at 1gb.
What am I doing wrong?
