Network Improvements in #vSphere 6 Boost Performance for 40G NICs

Network Improvements in vSphere 6 Boost…

Introduced in vSphere 5.5, a Linux-based driver was added to support 40GbE Mellanox adapters on ESXi. Now vSphere 6.0 adds a native driver and Dynamic NetQueue for Mellanox, and these features significantly improve network performance. In addition to the device driver changes, vSphere 6.0 includes improvements to the vmxnet3 virtual NIC (vNIC) that allows a single vNIC to achieve line-rate performance with 40GbE physical NICs. Another performance feature introduced in 6.0 for high bandwidth NICs is NUMA Aware I/O which improves performance by collocating highly network-intensive workloads with the device NUMA node. In this blog, we highlight these features and the corresponding benefits achieved.
