I was wondering if someone could clarify the sampling interval for me. If I were to monitor bytes sent/sec on a nic using performance/system monitor and set the sampling interval to 5 mins. Would the results display: A. what is going through the nic at that exact time. B. The average of what has gone through the nic over the last 5 minutes (indicating that it has been keeping track) C. A running total of what has passed through the nic between the last sample and the next interval. D. other (if so, please explain)
This counter type shows the average number of operations completed during each second of the sample interval. Counters of this type measure time in ticks of the system clock. The F variable represents the number of ticks per second. The value of F is factored into the equation so that the result can be displayed in seconds.
(N1- N0) / ( (D1-D0) / F), where the numerator (N) represents the number of operations performed during the last sample interval, the denominator (D) represents the number of ticks elapsed during the last sample interval, and F is the frequency of the ticks.
