I am trying to understand what my service provider is telling me about their vmware setup and how vMotion works.
There are 2 hosts and 1 of my guests on each host. Eg. Guest A on Host A, Guest B on Host B.
I ping Guest B from my client machine whilst the service provider uses vMotion to transfer Guest A to Host B.
During the vMotion the pings to Guest B rise dramatically to over 1000ms even though Guest A is the one being transferred.
The service provider states that vMotion shares the same network as the guests.
They say that even if vMotion had it’s own network the guests would be affected in the same way.
Can anyone explain what is going on with vMotion please?
