VxRail enables network I-O control on the VMware VDS and configures custom Network I-O Control (NIOC) settings for the following network traffic types.
The settings depend on whether the VxRail cluster was deployed with either two Ethernet ports per node that is reserved for the VxRail cluster, or if four Ethernet ports were reserved for the VxRail cluster:
|Traffic type||NIOC shares|
|Four ports||Two ports|
|VMware vSphere vMotion traffic||50||50|
The reservation value is set to zero for all network traffic types, with no limits set on bandwidth.
