    VMware workstation don't support that.
    You can monitor bandwidth using ESXi with vDS(virtual distributed switch), which will cost pretty much.

    I know this is an old post but this was one of the first results that came up in Google so wanted to throw out the answer here to save other folks some time.

    In VMware Workstation 9 you can limit bandwidth per VM.

    1. Select the virtual machine and select VM > Settings.

    2. On the Hardware tab, select the virtual network adapter and click Advanced.

    3. Select a bandwidth setting.

    4. Click OK to save your changes.
