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

Before you begin


  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.
