In vRealize Network Insight Cloud, you can view a hardware VTEP in the VM-VM path.

Currently, vRealize Network Insight Cloud supports the following scenarios:
  • VM-VM path through hardware VTEP when the source and destination VMs are located in a different VXLAN and a different host.
  • VM-VM path through hardware VTEP when the source and destination VMs are located in the same host but different VXLAN.
  • Hardware VTEP in the VM underlay topology when the switch is directly connected to the host.
Note: When you add the Arista Switch SSH in vRealize Network Insight Cloud as a data source, you must use the same IP/FQDN that you have used VMware NSX Manager to configure Arista Switch SSH. Otherwise, you do not see the hardware VTEP in the VM-VM path.

You can also view the hardware VTEP in VM topology and in the VM to Internet path if a hardware VTEP is available between the VM and Internet.

VM-VM path through hardware VTEP when the source and destination VMs are located in the same VXLAN is unsupported.

Following are a few examples of VM-VM path through hardware VTEP:

VM-VM path through hardware VTEP when the source and destination VMs are located in a separate host.
VM-VM path through hardware VTEP when the source and destination VMs are located in the same host.
