Our Vmware environment considt of a Windows based vCenter 6 update 3 server and 110 ESXi 6 update 2 hosts. We are in the process of redesigning out network and want to  finally break out our vmotion network into its own vlan. The blades nic layout would look like below. I have read the having vmotion across vlans / subnets is not supported due to the risk of latency. Yet I have see other KB article stating you can do it yet it is not recommended Thoughts?

vmnic0 - mgmt
vmnic1 - mgmt
vmnic2 - vmotion
vmnic3 - vmotion
vmnic4 - guest traffic
vmnic5  -guest traffic
