HI, How do we visualize Mapping between VM and NIC. Is each VM mapped to one NIC or can Multiple VMs be mapped to one NIC?. If so, how can we map multiple VMs to one NIC?

hope you are taking about the physical NIC. multiple VMs can bind to 1 physical NIC, VM can have one or more virtual NICs interfaces attached to it. you can imagine linux bridge(it is a software defined) which have virtual interfaces attached to VMs and one or more physical interfaces attached to it. if you attach the virtual interfaces to VMs and give your one physical NIC all VMs traffic will go through this physical NIC
