Can anyone clarify me how I could see VM interface speed as 10G when I have only 1G Adapter in my host? I am using VMXNET3 driver in my virtual machine.

Light reflects against objects and you see it?
You still get 10GbE between hosts on same ESXi
If you connect 10 computers to 128kbps ISDN line do they all magically drop the speed of LAN connection?

Thanks for your comments. Now i understood that it shows the speed of the interface between the VM and the vswitch inside ESXI. Is there any document from VMWARE/VMXNET3 to explaing this behaviour?
