Configuring Edge Gateway shaping/rate-limiting using vCD 8.20 API ?

Hello

I've been looking for a way to configure Edge Gateway shaping/rate-limiting using vCD 8.20 API but could not find a way to achieve this. Am I correct?

It looks possible using NSX API ("Working With a Specific Edge Services Gateway Interface"). We would prefer to use vCD API though.

thanks

Use <Link rel="edgeGateway:configureServices" href="https://vcloud.local/api/admin/edgeGateway/{ID}/action/configureServices" type="application/vnd.vmware.admin.edgeGatewayServiceConfiguration+xml"/> and add to config part of Gateway Interface rate limit settings:

<GatewayInterface>

...

    <ApplyRateLimit>true</ApplyRateLimit>

    <InRateLimit>100.0</InRateLimit>

    <OutRateLimit>100.0</OutRateLimit>

</GatewayInterface>

thanks for your answer.

I'm surprised Rate Limit settings can be entered this way as it is outside EdgeGatewayServiceConfiguration section. Anyway I tried and failed, I may have done something wrong. Did you already perform such config via the vCD API ?

I was also wondering where I could find all "actions" for an EG (like action/configureServices) ? Also failed to find this

Sorry that I misled you.

You need to use the method

PUT /admin/edgeGateway/{id}

https://code.vmware.com/apis/72/vcloud#/doc/doc/operations/PUT-EdgeGateway.html

Passing as the body xml the type GatewayType (you can get in response to GET /admin/edgeGateway/{id}) with the modified part

<GatewayInterface>

...

     <ApplyRateLimit>true</ApplyRateLimit>

     <InRateLimit>100.0</InRateLimit>

     <OutRateLimit>100.0</OutRateLimit>

</ GatewayInterface>

Well, do not forget the Content-Type: application/vnd.vmware.admin.edgeGateway+xml
