Live migration of virtual firewall under load (English)
Abstract [sv]

Virtualisering börjar bli mer och mer populärt att använda sig av. VMware är en tjänst som erbjuder virtualisering av hårdvara. Det betyder att man kan virtualisera flera maskiner på en server, detta för att spara på kostnad, plats och det blir lättare att managera. Tester görs genom att skicka Iperf data från en klient till en Iperf server. Mellan dessa två virtuella maskiner ligger en mjukvarubrandvägg som använder pfSense. Under tiden Iperf klienten skickar data till servern, utförs en vMotion migrering till en annan ESXi. Undersökningen går ut på att se hur vMotion hanterar en mjukvarubrandvägg som hanterar trafik samtidigt som den förbereder sig för att förflytta den virtuella maskinen till den andra ESXi-maskinen.

Resultatet visade att när man använder 1000 Mbit/s på länken, sänks överföringshastigheten av Iperf klienten för att vMotion trafik ska kunna skickas. Det man kan se är att belastning av bandbredden påverkar migreringstider, migreringen går fortfarande igenom men tiden det tar är längre.

Abstract [en]

Virtualisation is becoming more and more popular to use. VMware is a service that offers virtualisation of hardware. This means that it's possible to virtualize multiple machines on one server, this to save on cost, space and ease of management. Tests are made by sending Iperf data through a client to an Iperf server. Between these two virtual machines lies a software firewall that's using pfSense. Meanwhile the Iperf client is sending data to the server, a vMotion migration is executed to another ESXi. This investigation is about seeing how vMotion can handle a software firewall, that handles traffic at the same time it's about to migrate the virtual machine to another ESXI.

The results showed that when utilizing the 1000 Mbit/s link to the max, the transfer speed of the Iperf client is lowered to make room for vMotion traffic. You can see depending on the bandwidth that it is affecting the migration times. The migration is going through but the time it takes is longer.
