Best configuration for vSwitch four vNIC

  • 1.  Best configuration for vSwitch four vNIC

    Hi,

    i have two esxi 6.7 vsphere connected to a SAS storage.

    These servers have four 1Gbps vNICs.

    my network is not L3.

    I have a few networks (192.168.x.x) one for each role.

    Example:

    192.168.2.0 is for server group A
    192.168.8.0 is for server group B
    192.168.10.0 is for C server group

    I will install these two vsphere esxi 6.7 on a new network (192.168.13.0).

    And then I wondered ...

    Create a vSwitch with the four 1Gbps vNICs

    Is it worth creating a network for vMonitor for example (192.168.14.0)? Or better to use vMonitor on the network too (192.168.13.0)?

    Is it better to separate two vNIC (Managment and VM Network) for network (192.168.13.0) and two (vMotion) vNIC for (192.168.14.0)?

    Or can I create a single vSwitch with the four vNICs with two vKernel both (Managment, VM Network and vMotion) on the network (192.168.13.0)?

    Thanks.
