|Shares||The relative priority, from 1 to 100, of the traffic through this VM network adapter against the capacity of the physical adapter that is carrying the VM traffic to the network.|
|Reservation||The minimum bandwidth, in Mbps, that the VM network adapter must receive on the physical adapter.|
|Limit||The maximum bandwidth on the VM network adapter for traffic to other virtual machines on the same or on another host.|
