Depending on where you in your network you want to account for the data, you could do it on the hardware node the VMs are running on, your switches or your routers. Depending on your requirements, perhaps even a mirror port/vlan on your switch would be sufficient. You mentioned in an earlier in this thread that you’re using sflow - That will give you very detailed information on all of your network’s traffic.

Kind Regards,
