Disable NIC Bandwith Sharing


New Member

When a new VM is spun up, the max network bandwidth allowed for that machine is approximately 1/n, n being the number of vms that have been stood up.
How can I disable this so that any vm can use the full bandwitdth of the NIC if it is available?
this should already be the default behavior, how did you come to the conclusion that the bandwidth is divided by the number of running vms?
did you du iperf checks over the network?
