My network utilizations scripts are not working properly on my SR-IOV cards, so I have to use dstat util I can figure out why.

In Linux, using dstat, I see the following

----total-cpu-usage---- -net/total- sda-
usr sys idl wai hiq siq| recv  send|util

 93   3   2   0   0   2|  31M   30M|   0
 95   3   0   0   0   2|  30M   30M|   0
 95   3   0   0   0   2|  32M   30M|0.04
 95   3   0   0   0   2|  31M   30M|   0
 95   3   0   0   0   2|  30M   30M|0.02

I am assuming that this means the NIC is btoh sending and receiving 30 M of BYTES, as opposed to bits.

Is this correct ?

Also, can I assume that this is roughly 2.5 percent utilization of a 10Gb NIC ?

Is the 2.5 percent util also correct ?

The changelog of dstat says for version 0.3:
Converted all values to bytes
See line 376 of this document which is Dag Wieers' "dstat" changelog:

https://github.com/dagwieers/dstat/blob/master/ChangeLog

The same changelog introduces a new  
--bits option to force bit-values on screen
for version 0.7.2svn, see line 5 of the document above.

So when M indicates Megabytes your assumption of ~ 2.5% utilization is - roughly - correct.
