Limit upload/download on a nic of VM

Latest response

Hi,

Is it possible to limit the upload/download bandwidth in RHEV 3.x for a particular virtual machine. I don't see any option there. I have seen it in virt-manager but I don't know if we can do this in Enterprise Virtualization.

Hi Swapnil,

Since Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.3, you can apply quality of service (QoS) restrictions to virtual network interface controller traffic. You can find a description of this feature and some of the available settings here:

https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Virtualization/3.3/html-single/Administration_Guide/index.html#Network_QoS_Overview

This should give you a little more control over virtual machine traffic.

Kind regards,

Andrew

Thanks Andrew,
