Set-NetQosFlowControl

Updated: August 15, 2012

Applies To: Windows Server 2012

Set-NetQosFlowControl

Sets the flow control settings.

Syntax

Parameter Set: ByPriority
Set-NetQosFlowControl [[-Priority] <Byte[]> ] [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-Enabled <Boolean> ] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: __cmdletization_InputObject
Set-NetQosFlowControl -InputObject <CimInstance[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-Enabled <Boolean> ] [-PassThru] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Set-NetQosFlowControl cmdlet set the enabled state of priority-based flow control (PFC) in Windows Server® 2012 and later. If Windows Server 2012 or later is set to be not willing to accept configurations from a remote device, Windows Server 2012 or later will send the updated settings to data center bridging (DCB)-capable network adapters in the computer.

For more information on remote device configurations, see the Set-NetQosDcbxSetting cmdlet.

Priority-based flow control (PFC) is part of the IEEE data center bridging (DCB) standard.

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-CimSession<CimSession[]>

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutBuffer, and -OutVariable. For more information, see    about_CommonParameters.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/StandardCimv2/MSFT_NetQosFlowControlSettingData[]

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.
    The MSFT_NetQosFlowControlSettingData object contains the flow control setting per priority.


Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#ROOT/StandardCimv2/MSFT_NetQosFlowControlSettingData

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.
    The MSFT_NetQosFlowControlSettingData object contains flow control settings per priority. Only when the PassThru parameter is specified will this cmdlet return the MSFT_NetQosFlowControlSettingData object.


Examples

EXAMPLE 1

This example enables flow control on traffic tagged with priority 5. This cmdlet is equivalent to the Enable-NetQosFlowControl with priority 5.


PS C:\> Set-NetQosFlowControl –Priority 5 -Enabled $true

EXAMPLE 2

This example gets the flow control settings for traffic tagged with priority 5 and disables the flow control settings.


PS C:\> Get-NetQosFlowControl –Priority 5 | Set-NetQosFlowControl -Enabled $false
