In this chapter, we saw the vSphere log files relevant to networking. We also looked at some of the basic switching concepts. For troubleshooting, we took a deep dive into the troubleshooting commands and some of the monitoring tools to monitor network performance.
The various platforms to execute different commands help you to isolate your troubleshooting techniques. For example, for troubleshooting a single vSphere host, you may like to use
esxcli, but for a bunch of vSphere hosts you would like to automate scripting tasks from PowerCLI or from a vMA appliance.
In the next chapter, we will look at how to troubleshoot different storage problems in a vSphere infrastructure.
