My ESXi 5.0 update1 is a single server. All my network environment are Giga-LAN equipments and NICs.
I want to backup all the files of every guest OS and ftp them to a NAS server. My ESXi server's NIC is capable of running at 1000M bps speed and in VMware vSphere Client, it does show that that NIC is running at 1000M bps/sec.
My NAS server's NIC is also running at 1000M bps/sec. However, I found that when I scp files from ESXi host to NAS (or from NAS to host) , the network speed is only 6MB/s. I am sure that my NAS server's network speed is running at 1000bps/sec because when I ftp a big file from my Lenovo T400 to the NAS server through the same network router , the network showing on the NAS is about 60MB/sec. And, when I ftp a big file from guest OS to the NAS server, the network speed showing on the NAS server is around 40MB/sec.
My problem is, how do I config my ESXi 5.0's network so that I can ftp files from ESXi 5.0 host to other machine(such as my NAS server) can reach the speed of at 40MB/sec at least.
Thank you so much.
