How to control the outbound traffic for vMotion to not saturate the link.

This post was originally published on this site



We have an old ESXi host with 4 1G uplinks for vMotion and have a new ESXi host connected to the Nexus switch with 10G uplink. We are planning to migrate the virtual machines from old esxi to new esxi over vMotion Network with Multi-NIC configured to increase the transmission rate, however, we want to limit the vMotion traffic to the switch so that vMotion could not saturate the link. Could you please recommend any solution here as we have no enterprise license to use DvS to enable NIOC.


The switch we are using is Nexus 3000 Series.
