The Network panel displays server-wide network utilization statistics.

Statistics are arranged by port for each virtual network device configured. For physical network adapter statistics, see the row in the table that corresponds to the port to which the physical network adapter is connected. For statistics on a virtual network adapter configured in a particular virtual machine, see the row corresponding to the port to which the virtual network adapter is connected.
