NCM for vSphere

Is this NCM extension needed for only iSCSI MPIO or is it also for Fiber Channel connections too?

Re: NCM for vSphere

For FC implementation; we strongly recommend customer also install NCM on vSphere ESX.

Despite it works well with VMware native round-robin multipath policy; having NCM setup will also install "Nimble Path Selection Plugin (PSP)" which helps automatically directs the I/O request for a Nimble Storage device to the most favorable route; result better performance.
