How long does your VMware MPIO multipathing failover typically take, from the time you e.g. reboot a switch, till the sessions are re-established and the VMs resume?   My current configuration (Nimble NCM 3.0, ESXi 6.0, Nexus 3500 switches with recommended configuations) stuns VMs for ~30-40 seconds.  I know that this is technically well within VMware's spec to avoid crashing out the VMs, I'm just wondering if other customers get significantly shorter stun times in VMware iSCSI mpio failover scenarios......
