    VMWare ESXi 4.0 Help - Network issue

    Hello,

    I have 4 VMs running on a VMWare ESXi 4.0 server and it was running fine until yesterday when suddenly the network started consuming up to 100 mbps and making everything slow.

    I have checked through vSphere and I dont see any VM consuming that much, it only show that the host is using that much.

    I am attaching the picture from vSphere.

    Thank you very much.

    Can you see which individual server is using the bandwidth?

    No, as I sent in the picture, it show that the host is using the bandwidth but not a specific VM

    I am lost here.

    You should be able to see the network per VM.
    Install the vCenter on your PC then add ur host, but im pretty sure you can view the bw per vm off the bat.

    Site note.

    Install a sniffer/network utils. the vMA is pretty cool too.

    did you try copying your vm's to an external hd and then reinstall esxi then putting them back on the server?

    Use tcpdump or esxnet-support to get more detail of traffic generated on your server.

    installing the vMA will give you easier access to the 'console' of the ESXi server. i wouldn't open ssh on it...
