Network Performance Chart

In this article

    The Network chart displays historical statistics on network usage for the selected virtual infrastructure object.

    Host

    The following table provides information on predefined views and counters that apply to hosts.

    Chart View

    Counter

    Measurement Unit

    Description

    Network Transfer Rate

    Network Bytes Received/sec

    KB/s

    Rate at which data is received across each network adapter on a host. The counter represents the bandwidth of the network.

    Network Bytes Sent/sec

    KB/s

    Rate at which data is sent across each network adapter on a host.

    Network Bytes Total/sec

    KB/s

    Rate at which data is sent and received across a network interface.

    Network Output Queue Length

    Network Output Queue Length

    Number

    Length of the output queue, in packets.

    If the Output Queue Length value exceeds 2, it can be an indicator of delays across the network. In this case, you should find and eliminate the bottleneck to improve performance.

    Network Connections

    Network Offloaded Connections

    Number

    Number of TCP connections (over both IPv4 and IPv6) currently handled by a TCP Chimney Offload network adapter.

    Network Errors

    Network Outbound Errors

    Number

    Number of outbound packets that could not be transmitted because of errors.

    Network Received Errors

    Number

    Number of inbound packets that contained errors preventing them from being deliverable to a higher-layer protocol.

    Network Transfer Rate (Packets)

    Network Packets Received/sec

    Number

    Rate at which packets are received on the network interface.

    Network Packets Sent/sec

    Number

    Rate at which packets are sent on the network interface.

    Network Packets/sec

    Number

    Rate at which packets are sent and received on the network interface.

    Virtual Machine

    The following table provides information on predefined views and counters that apply to VMs.

    Chart View

    Counter

    Measurement Unit

    Description

    Virtual Network Usage

    Virtual Network Bytes Received/sec

    KB/s

    Rate at which data is received across the vNIC instance on a VM. The counter represents the bandwidth of the network.

    Virtual Network Bytes Sent/sec

    KB/s

    Rate at which data is sent across the vNIC instance on a VM.

    Virtual Network Bytes/sec

    KB/s

    Network utilization, sum of data received and sent across all vNIC instances on a VM.

    Virtual Network Usage (Packets)

    Virtual Network Packets Received/sec

    Number

    Total number of packets received per second by the network adapter.

    Virtual Network Packets Sent/sec

    Number

    Total number of packets sent per second by the network adapter.

    Legacy Network Bytes Dropped

    Legacy Network Bytes Dropped

    B

    Amount of data dropped on the network adapter.

    Legacy Network Usage

    Legacy Network Bytes Received/sec

    B/s

    Amount of data received by the network adapter.

    Legacy Network Bytes Sent/sec

    B/s

    Amount of data sent by the network adapter.

    For objects that are parent to hosts and VMs, Veeam ONE Client displays rollup values.
    Charts for folders and clusters display rollup values for all hosts in the container. Chart for a resource displays rollup values for all VMs registered as shared resources.
