Default Fiber Traffic

All, I have a backup server with fiber card or scsi card in it. I'm
seeing a lot of traffic on my network card and it should all be going
thru my fiber card. The fiber card is hooked up to some sort of tape
device/robot. Is there a way that I can view or see my fiber card
device traffic? I'm getting complaints that I'm clogging the network
bandwidth and that shouldn't be the case. Thanks guys!

A fiberchannel card is not the same as a glass (fiber) NIC--especially
if it's connected to a tape library.

Post your "lspci" output.

In ifconfig I don't see the actual tape device card and only network
devices. It seems like my device is the Fibre Channel: Emulex. Here is
my lspci output....
