VMWare, what is this telling me

I have a machine with 8 VM's, each with 5 physical cores

This machine has a single NIC, but the NIC has two ports, each port
is configured to have 4 SRIOV ports on it.  So I have a total of 8 ports,
with 4 SRIOV ports on each of the two NIC ports

    NIC

    NIC Port 1      NIC Port2

    SRIOV port 1    SRIOV port 1
    SRIOV port 2    SRIOV port 2
    SRIOV port 3    SRIOV port 3
    SRIOV port 4    SRIOV port 4

Open in new window


On each VM I attached a PCI device

I have VM's of AAA_1, AAA_2, AAA_3, AAA_4, AAA_5, AAA_6, AAA_7,
and AAA_8.  All my clients are working all the VM's well, and I
can see the throughput flow into all the VM's from the clients

Now when I send throughput through all 8 VM's, I see the following
in the esxtop->N

 8:47:32pm up 5 days 22:15, 889 worlds, 8 VMs, 80 vCPUs; CPU load average: 0.00, 0.01, 0.00

So why can I only see throughput through AAA+7 and AAA+8.

How can I view the throughput of all 8 VM's

Thanks
