You can change the sample collection rate using the Utilization Sampling settings on the Logical Interconnects or the Logical Interconnect Groups screen.

Packet Transfer Rate graph

Displays the packet transfer rate (transmitted and received) of the downlink port over time, and the average packet transfer rate.

You can change the sample collection rate using the Utilization Sampling settings on the Logical Interconnects or the Logical Interconnect Groups screen.

Advanced Statistics

These fields display if a downlink port is on an interconnect that supports statistical data collection, and if the interconnect is in a managed state.

The counters that appear depend on the port type: Ethernet, FlexFabric Fibre Channel, the Virtual Connect 8Gb 24-port FC Module, Virtual Connect 16Gb 24-port FC Module, or Fabric extender.
