Introduction

 

This is a short guide on how to configure and verify QOS Weighted Fair Queuing on the Nexus 1000V.

This feature will only work with ESX 4.1 as we make use of Network I/O Control that was introduced by VMware in ESX 4.1

This feature allows you to create a QOS policy based off common VMware ESX traffic. From that policy you can then allocate a bandwidth percentage to that traffic class. It's very easy to setup and apply.

 

Requirements and Assumptions

 

  • Installed VMware VC  4.1
  • Installed Cisco Nexus 1000V 1.4 on an ESX VM in HA mode
  • At least 1ESX/ESXi4.1  box with VEM module already loaded
  • Created a Nexus 1000V Distributed Virtual Switch(DVS) under vCenter
  • Added the ESX boxes to the Nexus 1000V DVS
