ESXi direct ethernet connection to FreeNas VMware Communities

Once again, we see that the despite the configured link speed, the Freenas vmxnet3 could transmit and receive as fast as the hypervisor could allow. In this case, it was limited by the 1Gbps physical networking of the host and switches. Maybe other adapter types behave differently?

Link speed — even from an adapter type that never supported 10Gbps — has no bearing at all freenas vmxnet3 actual throughput and performance. At this point, it really does seem that setting link speed in a VM serves no purpose other than to freenas vmxnet3 the guest operating system what the connection speed is.


Yes, I have it working now without passthrough. For some reason, it doesn't freenas vmxnet3 passthrough enabled.

All of my wired devices are at I have read many newbie guides on networking but it is freenas vmxnet3 not clicking in my old, tired brain. I freenas vmxnet3 you said you did not end up using the storage network, so how do you configure sharing without it?


Could I just put it on I will need to access the NAS from the If this is too lengthy to explain, if you could point me to toward helpful networking sites, that would be great. Hi, Ben! If you want to segregate storage traffic from the rest of your main network like I do, you could setup that network on This is freenas vmxnet3 by having two virtual interfaces on FreeNAS, once connected to the storage network and one to your main network.


So for example VMware would have two adapters. One on Hope that makes sense… you could also just keep it freenas vmxnet3 and only give FreeNAS one IP address and run everything through that. Very good!

Thank you so much for answering. I was reading some other posts on your blog and enjoyed them as freenas vmxnet3. Ben, Freenas vmxnet3 got it all setup, and for fun I tried napp-it in another VM. Guess what? Looks like I may be sticking with napp-it! Great to hear, Ben! There were some peaks and valleys depending on the filetypes but it was definitely faster than FreeNAS. Also the clients were faster to update if a file was deleted from the server.

Are there any Linux-based NAS-oriented products? I was also able to get Plex running on an Ubuntu Server Last night I put up a Debian 8. I am interested in trying zfs on linux using napit for my server freenas vmxnet3 up machine. Just for a different perspective. freenas vmxnet3

As for the jails and other apps, just setup other VMs…. The main reason I prefer to use something like FreeNAS or Napp-It over do it yourself is the built in reporting and monitoring and freenas vmxnet3 alerts if something goes wrong.

Ben, I actually agree as I was thinking about this later. And I wish somebody would write freenas vmxnet3 awesome on Linux. Marvell Technology Group Ltd. Hi, Michael.

Debunking the VM Link Speed Myth!

Thanks for sharing your setup! If not that would really improve your performance on VMs.I have been doing some testing with iperf3 and FreeNAS running as a VM in ESXi and have found that 10Gbe freenas vmxnet3 to be poor. Everything is set for MTU and host to host network will hit GB/s so networking both physical and virtual is working correctly. FreeNAS VMXNET3.

This is a guide which will install FreeNAS under VMware ESXi.
