    Stupid. Moving to another vswitch does not guarantee the performance WILL be improved. It MIGHT be approved depending on the load on the uplinks of the new swtich. grrrrrrrrrrr

    Kind of an underhanded question. C is the only answer that is possible – but it’s a poor choice. The correct answer should be to use network I/O control on the vDS that the VM is attached to.

    A. is not possible – Shares are adjusted by traffic type on the vDS
    B. Wouldn’t help. Traffic shaping limits network performance only.
    D. Unrelated to the question.
