Windows Server Performance Team: Increase VMBus buffer sizes to increase network throughput to guest VMs

The Windows Server Performance team have done a really interesting post on how to optimize network performance inside of virtual machines by increasing the size of the VMBus buffers used by our network adapters.  They also do a very good job of explaining the causes and implications of performance issues around virtual networking – so go check it out:
