Examine the status of LRO on an ESXi when you estimate the networking performance on a host that runs latency-sensitive workloads.

Before you begin

Procedure

  1. In the vSphere Web Client, navigate to the host.
  2. On the Manage tab, click Settings.
  3. Expand the System section and click Advanced System Settings.
  4. Examine the value of the LRO parameters for VMXNET2 and VMXNET3.
    • For hardware LRO, examine the Net.Vmxnet3HwLRO parameter. If it is equal to 1, hardware LRO is enabled.

    • For software LRO, examine the Net.Vmxnet3SwLRO parameter. If it is equal to 1, hardware LRO is enabled.
