How to get the maximum bandwidth/MaxSpeed/Capacity of a Hyper-V virtual-switch? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are trying to monitor Hyper-V environment (Windows 2008 R2 and Windows 2012) using WMI, and have a very specific question Hyper-V virtual-switch.

    We have referred the below mentioned classes and their properties.
    1. Win32_NetworkAdapter (namespace:root\cimv2, property:Speed)
    2. Msvm_InternalEthernetPort (namespace:Root\virtualization\v2, property: Speed and Maxspeed)
    3. Msvm_EthernetSwitchBandwidthData (namespace:Root\virtualization\v2, property:Capacity and Reservation)

    All of the above classes and their properties returns 10000000000 (10 GBps) as MaxSpeed, which is NOT correct (as we know that our network connection is of 1 GBps)
    Here is our question: How to get the maximum bandwidth/MaxSpeed/Capacity of a Hyper-V virtual-switch?
