I am trying to utilize the Command line APi to limit certain resources and am trying to find the correct parameter to limit network utilization. I have tried using the NICSPEED but this does not seem ot have any effect. I am using the command "vboxmanage modifyvm FIAPA-XP --nicspeed1 x" where x changes and looking at the network bandwidth within the virtual device and it never changes. This might change the speed between 10 mbs, 100 mbs & 1000 mbs (and the numbers I have used go between 10 & 10000000) but I cannot tell what is really going on.
What is the correct command line parameter to limit the bandwidth - like --cpuexecutioncap.
