In the last chapter, we focused on high-performance networking. We investigated optimizing virtual networks for more throughput and less latency by utilizing technologies such as NIOC and network offloading.
In this chapter, we will learn about
esxtop, an advanced tool to monitor the performance at the ESXi host level. You will learn how to make use of the various metrics to analyze performance issues.
In this chapter, we will focus on the following topics:
