Get-NetAdapterVmq [[-Name] <String[]>] [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-IncludeHidden] [-ThrottleLimit<Int32>] [<CommonParameters>]
Get-NetAdapterVmq [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-IncludeHidden] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>]-InterfaceDescription* <String[]> [<CommonParameters>]

The Get-NetAdapterVmq cmdlet gets the virtual machine queue (VMQ) properties of VMQ-capable network adapters. VMQ is a scaling networking technology for vmswitch that hashes incoming packets based on the destination MAC address.


-AsJob [<SwitchParameter>]


-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.

-IncludeHidden [<SwitchParameter>]

Indicates that the cmdlet includes both visible and hidden network adapters in the operation. By default only visible network adapters are included. If a wildcard character is used in identifying a network adapter and this parameter has been specified, then the wildcard string is matched against both hidden and visible network adapters.

-InterfaceDescription <String[]>

  • This value is required
  • Accepts pipeline input ByPropertyName
  • Accepts wildcard characters

Specifies an array of network adapter interface descriptions. For a physical network adapter this is typically the name of the vendor of the network adapter followed by a part number and description, such as Contoso 12345 Gigabit Network Device.

-Name <String[]>

Specifies an array of network adapter names.

-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 PowerShellr 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.


This cmdlet supports the common parameters: Verbose, Debug,ErrorAction, ErrorVariable, WarningAction, WarningVariable,OutBuffer, PipelineVariable, and OutVariable.

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.

  2. Get all VMQ properties from the specified network adapter:
    PS C:\> Get-NetAdapterVmq -Name "GuestTrafficAdapter" | Format-List -Property "*"

    This command displays all of the VMQ properties of the network adapter named GuestTrafficAdapter.

  3. Get all VMQ capable network adapters where VMQ is enabled:

    This command gets all of the VMQ-capable network adapters where VMQ is enabled.
