finding Network statistics when logged in ssh on my ESXI Mng network interface

Jump to solution

Hi,

I would like to see some statistics on my ESXi Manamgnet port.

I want to see if I have network errors, Discarding etc.

I'm not sure how to do it when I logged in to the Managment with SSH CLi

please help.

Thanks!

Dotan.

My sincere apologies. I tried out in a 5.1 environment where the namespace is there. Also, in 5.0, I tested out

ethtool -S vmnic0  to be giving similar data.

Use the esxtop command and then the n and v keys. The q key will exit esxtop, when you are finished.

In addition to ESXTOP, you can view additional stats using ESXCLI. Take a look at this blog article for more details http://blogs.vmware.com/vsphere/2013/01/network-troubleshooting-using-esxcli-5-1.html

Hmmm..

you can still use esxcli network nic stats get -n vmnic0 and get the same output from the command prompt in ssh of your ESXi.

Also, in case, you are MORE interested in more details, you can also do

vsish -e get /net/pNics/vmnic4/stats

Again, do try to use vsish only if you know what you are doing. It is only for troubleshooting

Hi,

Thanks a lot for your answer!!

vsish -e get /net/pNics/vmnic0/stats - works great!!!!

when I typied "esxcli network nic stats get -n vmnic0"

I get "Error: Unknown command or namespace network nic stats get"  (ESXI 5.0)

but I think I'm good.

Thanks again!!

Dotan.
