Virtual Function (VF) Tx Rate Limit on XL710-Q2 NIC card


How to enable tx rate limiting? I referred and ran below command

# ip link set p2p2 vf 15 rate 1000

But it doesn't seem to be effective. From iperf i can still send and receive more than 1gbps traffic. Hardware/software configurations are attached.


  1. Is this any configuration issue? Or any other issue (hardware/driver/kernel/or any thing else?
  2. Is there any similar mechanism available for rx rate limiting?
