Are you testing NSX-T ECMP link failover or network convergence correctly?

 Hello friends!! In this post I am going to talk about NSX-T link failover testing, which we all do at the end of deployment. 

I recently got to know I was doing it all wrong. Though it was always giving correct results still that's not the recommended way of checking link failover or testing convergence NSX-T deployment.

Well you must be wondering what was I doing and what you should be avoiding. 

So let me spill the beans, I was testing convergence by disconnecting Edge node virtual NIC one by one, which makes that path down and traffic use to converge to other available path. However it is not the correct way of doing it. 

So if you are also using same test for making a path down, would suggest not to use it, instead bring down physical NIC card of the host and for complete edge node failure, put edge node in maintenance mode.
