Foglight Agents misreporting NIC status/usage on VMs

Hi,

We have a situation where a Foglight NMS Studio agent (installed on a Win 2008R2 VMware VM version 7 virtual machine with a 1Gb E1000 NIC) is reporting NIC usage incorrectly.

When I say incorrectly, I mean either very high (but <1Gb) or sometimes impossibly high (>1Gb)

VMware tools is up to date.

I have checked usage in both the OS and in vCenter, and it is very, very low (<400kbps on average)

Would anybody be able to shed some light on this?

Also, some agents are installed on VMs with VMXNET 3 NICs. In the OS, these are seen as 10Gbps NICs. Foglight sees them as 4,294.97Mbps. Is this normal?

Much appreciate any help.

At the time, Foglight agents were unable to correctly report stats from a VMXnet vNIC
