While I think I know the answer to this one, I have to double check

On Linux with nmon I get the following:

-------------------------------¦
¦I/F Name Recv=KB/s Trans=KB/s packin packout insize outsize Peak->Recv Trans  ¦
¦    lo     0.0     0.0       0.0      0.0     0.0    0.0        0.0     0.0   ¦
¦  eth1 30493.8 30764.1    25225.5   26202.3  1237.9 1202.3    35019.2 50741.4 ¦
¦------------------------------------------------------------------------------¦
¦               

Open in new window

                         

So what this is telling me is that

1> nmon actuall reports in DB (Bytes), not bits, which I find surprising.

2> This is approx 2.5 percent utilization of a 10GB card, more or less

Click "Network Interface View" if it doesn't open automatically.

Don't worry that the above is for AIX, it's the same on Linux
