I have a single VM attached to a PCI device

I am putting in very good network input througput both into the VM and out from the VM.  I know I am getting a lot of data through

However, the command esxtop - N is not showing any throughput.

I think I know why.   I have attached the VM to a multi-port SRIOV deivce, 1 Card, 2 ports, 4 SRIOV ports each

My question:  Does the
esxtop - N

Open in new window

command support this.  Are there any bugs taht show that the esxtop will not report this accurately ?

Thanks

One of the biggest management holes in vCenter of ESX is the vSphere Client can indicate that VM network traffic is causing a 1 GB Ethernet adapter to have a 99% utilization rate. But strangely, it doesn't display which kind of traffic is going across the virtual networks, where it came from or where it's going.

To learn which traffic is going across a virtual network, there's another free tool for vSphere: Xangati for ESX, a virtual appliance that tracks conversations on the virtual network. It's great for troubleshooting any virtual network issue, analyzing virtual desktop infrastructure and correlating vCenter performance stats with virtual network stats.
