      What is the meaning of "Receive Throttle" setting for vmxnet3 nic ?

       

      For example here it says :

       

      VMware Tools 10.2.5 Release Notes

      Receive Throttle: The default value of the receive throttle is set to 30.

       

      what does 30 mean ? is there any manual for the vmxnet3 nic ? could it mean limit to 30 packets every millisecond, i.e. maximum 30,000 packets / second (reading ndis 6.2 microsoft docs).

       

      additionally, with vmware tool driver  1.8.3.1 of September 2018, why is this option not listed in the network card options : Recv Segment Coalescing
