The best way to compare those values would be the average readings for the whole period of activity(migration), the individual readings will most likely be different because the speed will vary during the migration and the exact instant were the measurement of PRTG was performed will also influence individual readings.

You can also compare the values reported by ESXi's interface in comparison to the values recorded by windows, you may also find a difference there.

Its average values. VMware WebClient show 970000 kbit/s. It seems SNMP Traffic 64bit sensor show incorrect data.

Hello MAA.

I'm afraid that we would need reports and additional information regarding your Setup to be able to provide a more detailed explanation/reply. The information provided by the 64-bit SNMP counters should be more reliable than any other available information.

Kindly mention this KB's Post URL if you decide to contact us.

Best Regards,
