VMWare, esxtop SR_IOV and third party performance reporting

I posted on another thread that VMWare esxtop does not report network activity of SR-IOV ports.

Apparnelty there is no other way to handle this besides going into the OS and monitoring the network.  

While I can certainly do that, I have a questions, actually two questions

1> Can I get a third party program that will report the network activity of SR-IOV ports

2>  Will that third party get its information directly from the host ESXi, or will it somehow get it from the OS itself.  (in other words it would be reporting the same information as if I manually went to the OS and determined the network utilization?)

Thanks

I do not have knowledge of any SR-IOV network monitor/reporter and unfortunately, as of this date there is not an officially supported third-party application or CIM plugin that can report SR-IOV traffic from the ESXi server directly... I would keep checking the official HCL though... http://www.vmware.com/go/hcl
