To change properties of a virtual network interface, open the Virtual Interface Properties dialog box by doing one of the following:
You can change the network location and MAC address of a virtual network interface, and you may also be able to set its I/O priority.
|Network||The network location of the virtual network interface.|
|MAC address||The MAC address of the virtual network interface can be autogenerated or you can enter it manually in the form XY:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX where X is any hexadecimal digit, and Y is one of 2, 6, A or E.|
|Enable QoS limit||Select this option and enter a value in kilobytes per second (kB/s)
to set an optional I/O priority Quality of Service (QoS) setting
for maximum network transfer rate.
When memory resources are low, using I/O throttling in this way will slow the memory processing and help make the system more stable by preventing crashes.
If the pool is configured to use a vSwitch Controller, the QoS option here will be unavailable; in this case, you should configure QoS settings using the vSwitch Controller, if required.
