I was chasing down a Virtual Distributed Switch NetFlow support question the other day because a customer was wondering how our NetFlow Analyzer would handle the export.

A VDS can be distributed such that physical network adapters from multiple ESX hosts (esx1, esx2, esx3, etc) can be part of the switch.
