ESXi 5.5 Network throughput




I really like the amount of Data that is provided by the SOAP sensor. However it doesn't show the network bandwidth total. It shows the current throughput. We are only on version so a couple back from the latest (not sure if this has been included in that or not).

Is that included in the newest version or is it on the time line to get completed?

Hi Josh,

Unfortunately that's also not the case in the current version. The thing here is that SOAP simply does not provide a counter that would enable such measurements.

Kind regards.
