I want to monitor the utilization in % on the uplinks of XOS switches. How do I do this?
In the console you can select the flexview "port utilization in percent", which is the one I need. But how do I add the ports I want to see and how do I display them in OneView?

Hi,Have you tried custom reports, under reports?

Select a switch, collect interface statistics

Alternatively you can collect interface stats from console [May have to depending of version of Netsight running 6.1 vs 6.2 vs 6.3]

After 10-15 minutes, we will have collected interface stats to start graphing. 

In Oneview
Under Custom Reports Select interfaces  and choose what you want to graph %utils


Not sure if this was added in 6.2 or 6.3
Save it report designer as an option

In Administration tab go to Report Designer


Pick the custom report option we created, additional elements can be created and added together as well for a single report.


Save then under reports we can then view anything we created

Great! This is exactly what I was looking for! I will check it out later but I guess this is the solution.
