Receive side scaling is introduced and configured for physical hosts and virtual machines as a method of load balancing network traffic across multiple CPUs.
- [Instructor] We've spent the first three videos…of this course making sure our physical network…connections are as fast as they can possibly be,…and that makes sense,…since the name of this chapter is High Performance Network.…So what we have is our three physical NICs…and if we look at their properties page now,…we'll notice that none of the protocols…and services are enabled except the Multiplexer protocol.…That's because the configuration is shared…among all the NICs in the team.…
The protocols and services are all assigned…to this team as opposed to the individual NICs.…And that brings us to the next…potential bottleneck, and that is the CPU.…If we have a 10 gigabit NIC,…or, better yet, we've teamed up multiple 10 gigabit NICs,…we have to ability to send…and receive a lot of network traffic.…And all of that traffic has to be processed,…so it can be properly handled in terms of…security checks, packet segmentation,…and everything else involved in turning…network packets into saved and retrieved files.…
In Windows Server 2003 and earlier,…
