How To Solve VM Network Timeout Issues Using Troubleshooting Measures

Operating a system or running a new application it is always a nightmare to get prompts of network timeout issues. It is usually very irritating plus can kill lots of time in solving the former. The only option left after getting the issues are validating each troubleshoot with proper guidelines and take corrective steps as necessary.

Let’s consider a common problem.

Users generally encounter issues while working on an application-running on windows 2008 R2 to vSphere 5.1 environments. The best thing is the performance is boosted but again, timeout issue arises. While working in virtual server, which shares hardware and software resources in the operating system also many times the timeout issues, arises. Then a lengthy application timeout setting of 60 minutes is run, but still many users again start encountering with the timeout issues after 10 minutes only.

So the problem remains the same how to solve the issue?

Many a times when the network issue comes to surface, it is quite difficult to determine the epicenter of the trouble, especially in highly complex virtual infrastructure and esx servers. You can diagnosis these timeouts and start your trouble shoot steps but let me present you some tools which can cut down your hassle.

Some of the most commonly used trouble shooting measures are-

  • Use the performance counters in the vSphere client to analyses the network statistics of your host and VM. If you see the performance tab it will show that the packets are been lost, and it’s usually difficult to determine the source. Check the usual suspects, such as duplicate IP addresses, and try to use another physical network interface card to connect the virtual server or switch to the physical switch to eliminate physical problems.


  • If you want to set up the statistics, you must configure the chart options for your ESXi host to show real-time network counters to display when both transmit and receive packets have been dropped.

  • Once a VM network timeout issue has been identified, the next step that must be taken is to isolate the scope of the issue. The common trends are slow increase in performance times over time, an increase in certain errors, or an increase in certain component times, may actually be apparent before something breaks, so it is important to be able to identify that these changes are occurring and work to resolve an issue before it escalates into an outage.
  • Many a times the problem of network issue timeout starts with free vps also, which runs its own copy of operating system if we talk about functionality its equivalent to dedicated physical server.
