When users adopt the vSphere Distributed Switch (VDS) there is a whole new level to monitoring that becomes available that’s not possible with our vSphere Standard Switch. Industry standard tools such as Port Mirroring and Netflow and our own VDS monitoring called Health Check. These powerful tools not only help to troubleshoot issues or monitor traffic but help to ensure you don’t have issues to begin with.
The following videos and Product Walkthroughs demonstrate how to enable and use these features.
All of the VDS Product Walkthroughs are located at: http://featurewalkthrough.vmware.com/VDS/
