How to pass QEMU command-line options into VM

Hello everyone,

I want to set default disk throttling for new VM by add bps_rd, and bps_wr options into qemu-system command, example “/usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 -name one-4 …-drive file=/var/lib/one//datastores/0/4/disk.0,format=qcow2,bps_rd=943718400,bps_wr=471859200…” Can someone give me a hint how to pass qemu command-line options into VM.


Hi Vynt,

Try (in sunstone) Templates -> VMs -> Update -> Storage, expand Advanced options and look for IO throttling (bytes/s).

Kind Regards,
