I am following the same instructions as given in
I have exactly the same setup, except for the measurement host, but I don't
see any difference in the netperf results, I have given more details in the
previous post. Any suggestions/input please?
Ok, So that means hardware should be configurable enough, that it
understands VMs, and QoS for each VM? Is there any way to set egress QoS on
Thanks & Regards
