Esxi e1000 versus vmxnet3

Hi,

Is it worth updating all my vm s to vmxnet3?
I see nic goes from 1gb to 10 gb but is iit really a performance gain for a lab?

YES. ALWAYS!

E1000 is just for legacy installation!

Weird things happen in OSes with the E1000! (e.g. Win2k8)

Make sure you have VMware Tools installed.

or make sure you have VMXNET3 in ALL your templates (you do have templates?)
