Way to get Network Transmit/Receive stats for a guest?

Oct 19, 2009 at 6:48 PM

Anyone know a way to get the Network Transmit/Receive stats for a guest (without querying the guest itself)?

I need to get this information for the free ESXi(3.5/4) host systems, running 4 guests, and need to determine how much network has been used by each guest (Eventually getting this information into MRTG)

I know this information is available (since I can get it via esxtop) but cannot for the life of me get it easily via tools... any suggestions?

It's definitely not available via VixCOM. I would look at the VSphere management API. No idea where/how/what.
