We’ve been using VyOS on ESX 5.5 for a while now and have been thrilled with the performance. We’re running on fairly robust hardware, and it’s handling 900Mbps of internet throughput without issue.
We are looking to add a 10Gig NIC to the host VyOS resides on in order to prepare for the potential of surpassing the 1Gbps mark on our internet bandwidth in the future. Does anyone have any experience in this or any suggestions? Currently, VyOS is using the E1000 adapter inside of ESX (and it’s the only choice when adding a NIC to the VyOS virtual machine).
What can be done to allow the use of the VMXNET adapter to account for the increased speeds? Thanks!
