NetQueue is enabled by default. To use NetQueue after it has been disabled, you must reenable it.



  1. In the ESXi Shell on the host, use the following command:
    esxcli system settings kernel set --setting="netNetqueueEnabled" --value="TRUE"
  2. Use the esxcli module parameters set command to configure the NIC driver to use NetQueue.

    For example, on a dual-port Emulex NIC run this ESXCLI commands to configure the driver with 8 receive queues.

    esxcli system module parameters set -m tg3 -p force_netq=8,8
  3. Reboot the host.
