Measuring QPI bandwidth

Measuring QPI bandwidth

I am measuring a number of things using performance counters.However, I am unsure how to useUNC_QHL_REQUESTS requests.Basically, I send network traffic with a 10Gbps card at 10Gbps and I would like to measure something like 10Gbps on the QPI link.I consider the counter is counting QPI flits (80bits). when I send 800Mbps on the network, I measure 800Mbps on the QPI link (I unse UNCORE counters starting at 0x3B0).When I send 10Gbps, I measure 3Gbps, as if it was counting for only one QPI Home Agent. I checked for overflows of the counters and nothing seems bad there. I tried to modify CMASK just in case it was telling for which Home Agent the counter works but if I change CMASK I allways get 0 in the counter.does anybody have an idea how to get this done ?
