People,

I have followed the steps to create the iSCSI network connection as per: https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/9250/HOW-TO-Add-an-iSCSI-Software-Adaptor-and-Create-an-iSCSI-Multipath-Network-in-VMware-vSphere-Hypervisor-ESXi-5-0.html

Butas you can see below, only one NIC that is used and it is just 116 MB/s ?

I've configured the Jumbo frame as per this article and also set the vSwich accordingly: https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/9132/HOW-TO-Enable-Jumbo-Frames-on-a-VMware-vSphere-Hypervisor-ESXi-5-0-host-server-using-the-VMware-vSphere-Client.html

How to fully utilize the both network connections for vmotion ?
