BL465c network traffic monitor

I have some server bl465c with winsrv 2003 or 2008 installed.
I have configured with software "HP Network Configuration Utility" a team between 2 NIC.
Next I created 2 virtual NIC linked to 2 vlan.

My problem is: how can I obtain network traffic from 2 virtual NIC?
If I use perfmon I can obtain network traffic only of real NIC.

Re: BL465c network traffic monitor

When you create the VLANs on the NCU, you have to assign them a VLAN ID, 1 of those vlans will be selected as native, if you are running NCU 9.70, it will allow you to choose between tagged or untagged native vlan. Those two connections will appear on the windows local area connection.

After that, blade switch or external switch where the NICs are connected must be configured for VLAN tagging, if is not configured it will allow you to talk on the native vlan only if it is untagged.

For example, if you create 2 VLANs, VLAN10 and VLAN2. VLAN 10 as native untagged, connected to a Cisco switch, the switch interface config must be something like this:

int gi0/x
switchport mode trunk
switchport trunk native vlan 10
switchport trunk allowed vlan 10,20
