Cmdlets are usually implemented around resource operations. The four basic operations are CREATE, READ, UPDATE and DELETE. This set of operations is known as CRUD. Most of the cmdlets support CRUD which are respectively cmdlets that start with the New/Get/Set/Remove cmdlet verbs but they also may have additional operations

Step 1: Retrieve a object by running a Get command

You can READ objects by using Get-VDTrafficShapingPolicy cmdlet. See example below:

# Retrieves the ingress traffic shaping policy of a vSphere distributed switch named "MyVDSwitch".

Get-VDSwitch "MyVDSwitch" | Get-VDTrafficShapingPolicy -Direction In

Step 2 : Run commands from the CRUD group

You can UPDATE objects by using Set-VDTrafficShapingPolicy cmdlet. See example below:

# Enables traffic shaping for a specific port in a distributed port group named "MyVDPortgroup" and updates the average bandwidth settings in their traffic shaping policies.

Get-VDSwitch "MyVDSwitch" | Get-VDPortgroup "MyVDPortgroup" | Get-VDPort -Key 4| Get-VDTrafficShapingPolicy -Direction In | Set-VDTrafficShapingPolicy -Enabled $true -AverageBandwidth 100000
