We are experiencing an issue across several of our ESXi hosts when monitoring network traffic; the amount of packets received across both Management Switch and VM vSwitch is in millions, congesting our network, resulting in dropped packets. The hosts are stand-alone and blades from HP, connected to Cisco 6509 Switches over 1 GB network. Each vSwitch is configured with two NICs.
