z/VM Virtual Switch: The Basics
Project and Program: Linux & VM
, SHARE Providence 2017
In this session we will cover the basic components of the z/VM Virtual Switch (VSWITCH) and its Theory of Operation.Â Â We will focus on how physical Ethernet switches work and how they interface with z/VM.Â Â In addition to learning how hosts communicate on a LAN and how it works with TCP/IP, you will learn about the difference between z/VM Guest LANs and the VSWITCH, the difference between switching and routing, the meanings of 'Layer 2' and 'Layer 3', authorization options, HiperSocket-VSWITCH Bridge, Virtual Edge Port Aggregator (VEPA) and other IEEE standards.Â Also we'll discuss the various high availability options, including Link Aggregation.
More advanced topics will be covered in session:
