How to monitor a NIC teaming in Windows 2012



I do not find how to monitor a NIC teaming in Windows 2012 server. Starting with Windows 2012 server, the teaming is no more a NIC manufacturer specific driver but a standard Windows feature, out of the box. When looking in PRTG sensor of type "windows network card", only physical adapter are listed but not the "compound" one for the timing.

The selection of available network cards is based on the following WQL query:

SELECT Name FROM Win32_PerfRawData_Tcpip_NetworkInterface

You can check this on your system by running this query via our WMI Tester.
