Associate a distributed port with a network resource pool to give you greater control over the bandwidth given to the port.

Enable Network I/O Control on the host and create one or more user-defined network resource pools.

Enable port-level overrides. See Edit Advanced Distributed Port Group Settings with the vSphere Web Client.


Browse to a distributed switch in the vSphere Web Client navigator.


Click the Manage tab and click Ports.


Select a port from the list and click Edit distributed port settings.


In the Properties section, click the Override check box and add or remove the port from a network resource pool.

If you did not enable port-level overrides, the options are not available.

To add the distributed port to a resource pool, select a user-defined resource pool from the Network resource pool drop-down menu.

To remove the distributed port from a resource pool, select Default from the Network resource pool drop-down menu.


Click OK.
