Foglight Agents misreporting NIC status/usage on VMs
Posted on 2013-01-23
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.
