I am creating some custom nagios plugins and I am scraping data from
xen using the nagios command:

/usr/sbin/xentop -b -i 2 -d1

I am trying to get the network tx / rx data, however I think I am
missing something here.


So total network bandwidth is 1048576 k if the above header from xentop is true.

So I am wondering why the output for each vm exceeds the theoretical
max, Is it really not measured in kilobits, or maybe there is
something screwy with the counters?

Any help is much appreciated.

If I add up all my vm values for RX I get:

5527563 k

This is greater than my gigabit connection which is:

1048576 k

Thank you!
