VMguest to monitor company’s network usage

We mirrored our outbound internet port to another port that is connected to another machine,

We used that machine and ran iftop to monitor bandwidth usage.

The server died and we decided to run that line to one of our esxi hosts that had free ethernet ports (We are using 10Gb SFP+)

We configured a new vswitch only with that nic and created a vm.

We turned on promisc mode on the vswitch and the port group.
However iftop does not show any TX. Do you have any idea what I can do to show the tx data?
