Subject Re: Limit network speed in per VM basis
Date Wed, 04 Dec 2019 12:37:32 GMT
Hi Andrija,

We used that to for KVM.

Another question. There is a „“ in global settings. What they
do? Any information?

NOT explicitly set it on offering) will simply throttle the vnet (vNIC) speed of the VM's
interface. This is done with "tc qdisc...." on linux (KVM) host.

applied to the Public NIC of the VR, that same network rate is applied to all other NICs of
the VR. This is also done via network rate set on the Service Offering for VR (or simply inheriting
the global values)

routing between internal networks (talking about isolated/vpc networks) Again, this is for
KVM specifically. I haven't tested this thoroughly with Vmware/XS so far, network throttling
is implemented differently there (on the network/vSwitch level)
