VMMAgent - Leverage SMB Multichannel capabilities during File Transfers
TL;DR - Is there any chance that VMMAgent will ever use SMB Multichannel for file transfers?
I understand that VMMAgent does stuff over 443 (or 80 if specified) for file copies. If there's an ODX-capable storage provider, then it will leverage that. Otherwise, it will try "Fast File Copy" and then BITS over HTTPS (or HTTP if specified).
My question (or feature request?) stems from the fact that Microsoft is pushing these great new technologies as the bee's knees - Storage Spaces Direct (S2D), SMB Multichannel, Converged Networking, VMM + WAS, etc. Why can't VMM use them?
In a multi-NIC environment, couldn't VMMAgent be improved to be a little "smarter"? If there's a faster route, use it. The ODX functionality is already built in to pass transfers over various protocols depending on providers, why not extend this to SMB Multichannel?
