Question:
We are seeing incorrect values for Interface Utilization with very high percentage utilization  – How can we fix this
 
Answer:
When seeing incorrect interface utilization values with for example peaks over 6000% and an average of over 1000% there is a setting that can be added to the .vnmrc file that can correct this problem.
Add the following entry in the .vnmrc file:
use_octets_for_util=TRUE
A restart of the Spectroserver is required after adding the entry.
