interface channels



I'm using SNMP Traffic Sensor to monitor one of my interface in a switch. I have enable to capture all available channels for this sensor. I noticed that some of the channels like Unicast Out (volume), Unicast out (speed) are all display in # and #/s. Can you explain what the unit means?

Is there any means to change to out units such as bytes or bytes/s ?

'#' means number of unicast packets in that case. We only get the number of those from the device so any conversion is unlikely.

best regards.
