Bytes Total (NETniBytesTotalPerSec)
Displays the rate that bytes are sent and received on the interface; this rate includes framing characters.
The Bytes Total attribute in BMC ProactiveNet Performance Management is referred as the NETniBytesTotalPerSec parameter in BMC PATROL.
Note: This parameter will be deprecated soon.
The packet size is NETniBytesTotalPerSec/NETniPcktsPerSec.
If the packet size drops, collisions are probably occurring and network efficiency is decreasing. The collisions may be caused by such things as a large number of users in a poorly configured network, or by a defective network card (NIC) that is sending excessive messages.
Consider running a diagnostic test on your NIC to check for configuration or hardware errors. Most NIC manufacturers provide a diskette that contains testing software.
