Slow Performance on VMs
Posted on 2014-04-17
For the past few days I have been experiencing very strange network behavior. After some testing today, it SEEMS like there is severe network lag between my VMs and my physical devices. All devices are on a single network.
Virtual machines are setup to carry workloads between the physical SQL Servers and the File Server.
I had a problem with one of the NICs on one of my ESX hosts a while ago and I was wondering if that could contribute to this.
Also, would adding Link Aggregation between the ESX hosts and the FW and Switches increase my bandwidth internally? Is there something on the ESXi I should be looking for?
Any insight is much appreciated.
If you need more information please let me know and thanks in advance for your help.
