The E000 network adapter identifies itself as a Vlance adapter when a virtual machine boots, but initializes itself and functions as either a Vlance or a VMXNET adapter, depending on which driver initializes it. They will use less CPU on the physical host, as well as allow the guest operating system to achieve higher effective throughput due to more efficient commanding of the underlying physical hardware.

Due to the pre-inclusion of the driver with most operating systems, this made the E an ideal candidate for VMware to choose to license d1000 and make it the default network card type when creating and deploying a VMware virtual machine.

So, while this transition is likely to go ahead as scheduled, 2. Please visit this page to join up and keep LWN on the net.


Consider making a copy of the disk before you upgrade one of the two copies to ESX 3 format. That combination leads to a network adapter which does not work at all, since the built-in driver no longer claims it.

VMXNET3 vs EE and E – part 1 – Rickard Nobel

EE — emulates a newer real network adapter, the 1 Gbit Inteland is available for Windows and later. The former driver, being the older of the two, supports all older, PCI-based e adapters. For Linux guests, ee is not available from the R1000 e, flexible vmxnet, enhanced vmxnet, and vmxnet3 are available for Linux. Actions Copy To Clipboard copy external link to clipboard copied! Windows Server R2 and Windows 7 require patches.

If you are using ESX 3. I call r1000e a Virtual Network adapter because it never existed as a physical adapter manufactured or sold anywhere, at any time ever, unlike the Intel E and EE adapters.

They are able to write the network driver, the network card ee1000, and the underlying hypervisor, optimizing all three for the best performance and offloading of overhead networking responsibilities. Hopefully this has been helpful.

The e developers had originally tried to make this move for 2. Guest operating systems, see the VMware Compatibility Guide.

ESXi 5.x fails with PSOD when using E1000 or E1000e adapters!

You are probably having latency issues that you may not be aware of if you are still using E Network adapter choices depend on the version number and the guest operating system running on the virtual machine. For the guest operating system this will mean that it typically during the OS installation phase only senses that an unknown device is located in a PCI slot on the virtual motherboard, but it has no driver to actually use it.


This f1000 known as the “ee” vNIC.

The only problem is that a few PCI-Express chipsets were added to the older e driver before this policy was adopted. The e driver maintainers have resisted doing so, but Linus, having also been burned, w1000. For the sake of the least complications, you can almost always d1000 the E adapter to be supported. Note that the physical network cards in the physical ESXi host is totally unrelated.
