There is a very important little point in implementing DVS. -Enable it on XenServer.
To perform this task, we logon on XenServer and run the following command inCLI.
This is very important, and that redirects all internal traffic through DVS and allows the performance of various tasks such as:
ACLs and QoS Policies; NetFlow; Traffic mirroring, Port Bonding & Per VMtraffic policy.

If you need Disable this funtionality, you need run this command:
(dvs use can cause certain problems of congestion in some environment)
It is important to know the procedure to run this configuration. These are the recommendations:

2.Migrate VMs off of host.
3.Enable bridge mode via command line: xe-switch-backend-network [bridgeoption]
5.Migrate VMs back.
