vCMP logical interfaces throughput
Hello, we currently have 2 BIG-IP 15800 each one connected with 2 100Gb interfaces.
So i have a guest vcmp with 8vCPU and 8 logical interfaces 0.1, 0.2, 0.3 and so on to 0.8. In the cli-console or at my zabbix those interfaces are detected as 10Gb each, and i can see traffic in all of them...
My question is, are those virtual interfaces capped at 10Gb ? Or in another words, how much bandwidth do i have on this vCMP?
The hypervisor is virtualizing networking so you will see an 'interface' for each vCPU.
For standard VS's , typically a TMM can't process more then 10G of traffic, for fastl4 use cases the FPGA offload occurs before TMM.
Said another way, there isn't a hard cap on bandwidth to the guest but there are practical limits in place for most traffic use cases.
