A capability that is natively integrated into the Arista Extensible Operating System (EOS) and that works with the entire Arista 7000 Family of Data Center Switches and links the Arista switches to VMware's vCenter to create an adaptive infrastructure whereby the network responds to sensed changes in the virtual machine network. It works with vSphere 4.0 and higher and utilizes the published vCenter APIs and works across all editions of vSphere. Some of the key capabilities of VM Tracer include segmentation and quality of service that is designed to address the challenges Virtual Machines bring to networking.
The individual features are:
* VM Auto Discovery - Find exactly which ESX Hosts and VMs are on a given port in the network.
* VM Adaptive Segmentation - Arista EOS will dynamically create VLANs as they are needed by the virtual machines. If a virtual machine shuts down or is moved, it's VLAN(s) will be pruned to preserve bandwidth and CPU cycles for useful workloads.
