SNMP-Traffic Sensor shows incorrect traffic values



For tests we configured a few sensors on our HP 5500 HI Switch, during the tests we transfered multiple times a 13GB large data and spotted that the SNMP-Traffic Sensor shows incorrect traffic values. The data was transfered with 114MB/s, but the sensor only shows 39-64MByte/s.

What could be the problem?
