This might sound like a silly question, but do I need to configure LAG settings on both ends? Currently running a single host with ESXi 6 (no vCenter), with three 1Gbps NICs in the vSwitch. The NIC Teaming Policy is set to Notify switches, but I haven't configured anything in the physical switch yet.
Here's the vSwitch topology Regarding the switch, it's a older Cisco 24-port Gigabit switch but it gets the job done. I already set two LAG connections, one two another identical switch in another office and another one for our NAS. Heres' the setup The ESXi host's RAID controller and disks are able to push about 250-300MB/s, and I have verify this by running ATTO from within the VMs. The VMs have VMXNET3 adapters connected at 10Gbps, but I'm not getting much over 80-110MB/s of throughout from the VMs to our NAS. The NAS is able to handle over 200MB/s, so what am I doing wrong?
NAS (RAID 5 capable of over 200MB/s) 2x 1Gbps NICs LAG > Cisco Switch > 3x 1Gbps links to the ESXi host (RAID capable of 300MB/sec)
The performance is practically the same if I use the VMXNET3 or the E1000 adapter in the VMs, which points to something not correctly configured somewhere else.
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!
