How to : Network resource management/pools
Posted on 2011-09-27
I need to determine a way to deploy network resource limits to individual hosts on a vSwitch, not at the vSwitch level. I'd rather do this at the ESX level than at the individual host OS-level.
For example, I want hosta/eth0 to be capped to a max throughput of 100mb/s, hosta/eth1 to be uncapped, hostb/eth0 to be capped to 1gb/s etc.
Am unsure if this is possible to do at the host level, in a way similar to resource pooling ram, cpu or disk.
