Based on a VSP, Virtualized AMS2500.

Would there be any associated overhead on AMS2500 CTL processors in this scenario vs. Standalone.

Understand there would be potential Host Impacts, i.e. extra fabric hops,etc, however does the act of Virtualizing the AMS have any direct AMS internal impact.

Guess what I'm gettin at is, if your current AMS(virtualized) is overtaxed on CTL processor utilization, would running the same workload standalone show any difference from a CTL processor pespective.

I suspect not as the AMS(Virtualized) just presents out volumes as "windows host targets" and would see the VSP as the "host"
