Hi Alberto,

Thanks for your reply.

Hi Pradeep,

the problem with implementing throttling for the network is that
it's useless if you use the vhost_net kernel accelerator, because it
bypasses QEMU entirely:


Thanks for this very valuable information. What if someone wants to just use virtio-net without the vhost acceleration? 
Any idea how it will be done in this case? It still uses cgroup or some other mechanism to do throttling?

libvirt implements this using tc:


Here it uses the cgroup inside the libvirt dirver to control the packet rate right?
