Sensor for ESXi networking?



I'm trying to monitor the Network stats on an ESXi 5 host. I've added sensors to monitor ping, system board and datastores (storage) and they're working fine. I've tried a couple of sensors, but have not found one that works for ESXi networking. Any suggestions?

the VMware Host Server (SOAP)-Sensor has two Channels with Network/Bandwidth monitoring values. Have you tried this one?

best regards.

All the data for the ESX host plus VMs and datastores -- very cool. Thanks!
