Can you automatically rate limit individual VMs after they reach a quota? vSphere 5.5

Is it possible assign a bandwidth quota on a individual VM? Then automatically set a rate limit if the quota is exceeded?

Not sure if you can, but on vSphere 6, using NIOC 3.0 you can configure bandwidth limit for individual virtual machine. See: About Allocating Bandwidth for Virtual Machines

I looked into Network I/O Version 3.0 on vSphere 6.0 and this is my understanding, please correct me if I am wrong.

On a individual VM adapter you're able to do the following;


    -Apply a share value (bandwidth priority value?)

    -Make a reservation (minimum bandwidth rate)

    -Rate limit (max bandwidth rate)


My goal is to set a bandwidth quota for individual VMs (1GB for example)


After this quota is exceed I want to automatically impose a rate limit.


Is this possible within the vSphere suite? Do I need to be looking into third party solutions?


Any advice will be greatly appreciated
