    Network I/O Control Enhancements
    Consolidated I/O or I/O virtualization delivers similar benefits as provided by x86 virtualization in terms of better
    utilization and consolidation of resources. However, as multiple traffic types flow through a single physical
    network interface, it becomes important to manage the traffic effectively such that critical application flows
    don’t suffer because of a burst of low-priority traffic. Network traffic management provides the required control
    and guarantee to different traffic types in the consolidated I/O environment. In the VMware vSphere 5.0
    platform, NIOC supports traffic management capabilities for the following traffic types:
    • Virtual machine traffic
    • Management traffic
    • iSCSI traffic
    • NFS traffic
    • Fault-tolerant traffic
    • VMware vMotion™ traffic
    • User-defined traffic
    • vSphere replication traffic
