bridge virtual NICs to reduce latency and increase speed?
Posted on 2011-09-27
I have a vm on hyper-v. The hyper-v host has two physical nics. I have created two external networks in hyper-v network management, external1 and external2.
My vm has two virtual nics, vnic1 and vnic2. If I connect vnic1 to external1, and vnic2 to external2 and then bridge vnic1 and vnic2 within the guest OS (win2003), will this reduce latency and double the bandwidth?
I realize the above scenario isn't the same as teaming, and in my case teaming on the hyper-v host isn't an option for various reasons. Basically I am just looking for a way to give more bandwidth to a vm and reduce latency.
