Abnormal Network Traffic value in Sensor



We find that some network card value abnormal huge (over 10Gb/s) in 6 minutes. However, the hardware NIC is only support max. 1Gb/s only. It seems not caused by sparks only. It is found 4 to 5 servers have the same problem when generating report.

We have already using the spike filter.

Any idea for this situation? Thanks.
