Hello Experts,

 I wanted to understand below concepts in VMWare networking
1). When we add port group to vSwitch which has 2 NIC's. Suppose if one of the NIC goes office , how VM will understand to switch to other NIC which is online (I am asking about the VM which had a connection to the NIC which went offline). Is there any function set ? Algorithm?

2).Active/Standby --> If we have defined this setting , will ESXi choose Standby automatically if Active adapter goes down? what happens if the Offline adapter comes back online ?WIll it act as standby or it will replace one of the adapter and become active adapter.

3). Do we have some tool which help us in monitoring the network traffice in VMWare ESXi host?
