ESXi network question best practice verus performance

This post was originally published on this site

Hi

 

We are trying to decide on the best design for ESXi blade servers in regards to networking setup with the available vmnics

We have four vmnics for each server split across two physical network cards in the blade chassis

We know best practice is to separate the different traffic – so management network, vMotion and VM traffic

The four vmnics are all 10Gbps speed

 

We have considered several different configurations but really unsure still – really looking for any advise to guide us to a given configuration

We were wondering if only to separate the vMotion traffic and then use the other three as standby

Just really looking for some real world experiences for this
