No Network Usage Data with VMXNET 3 NIC

I have Monitor 4.5 accessing vSphere 4. VM's using the flexible network adapter are reporting data just fine but VM's with the new VMXNET 3 adapter have "no data available" under Network Usage.

Ramsell, can you please check if you are able to see this data in the VMware Infrastructure Client?

Unfortunaetly you can't, there are people all over the place moaning at VMware for not providing this info, i'm having to downgrade ours to E1000 or VMXNET2 just so we can get this info.

Shame as apparently the vmxnet3 is far more efficient.
