I have VMWare ESXi 5.1 host with several gigabit links, connected to a LACP and 802.3ad-capable switch, in a static LACP mode on a switch, with "IP hash" load balancing mode in ESXi. I'm currently using vSphere standard switch.
It seems like while load balancing works ok for multiple TCP/IP streams to/from guest VMs, no single stream can utilize more than one link (e.g. 1Gbps), due to IP hash load balancing. And this is of course the only load balancing mode that supports LACP on ESXi.
Is there anything I can do to allow one TCP/IP stream to/from guest VM to utilize several gigabit links at the same time?
