SMB Multichannel is introduced along with the PowerShell cmdlets to verify and change its enabled status. Constraints are demonstrated to avoid slower links.
- [Instructor] The next piece that I want to add…to our high performance network toolbox is SMB multichannel.…Now, SMB multichannel is a way to use…every available NIC to share the load of file sharing,…getting the files off of the file server…and out to the network.…Unlike NIC teaming, it does not require…that all NICs be on the same subnet.…So it provides more flexibility,…but let's take a look at this situation.…If I have a file server here to the left…with three network cards, one is a one gigabit per second…and the other two are high performance 10 gigabit NICs,…this slow NIC could cause a bottleneck.…
If we're balancing the traffic…across all available interfaces,…then every third frame is going to be sent…to this slower network card, and in effect,…the entire group is going to be slowed down…to one gigabit per second,…because of this weakest link.…The fix for this is adding a constraint,…but let's not get ahead of ourselves.…Let's take a look at SMB multichannel…and how to confirm that you have it running…
