Bandwidth monitoring

Wed Jan 22, 2014 5:34 am

I'm keen to monitor/graph bandwidth on my network. I was told to use Queues. First problem is that I can't find "queues" in the CLI, only in WebFig.

I think I correctly setup a queue to monitor my laptop.

(Ideally I would monitor ALL clients, not just my laptop)

The graph is very disappointing and practically tells me nothing. I want to see exactly how many bytes are coming in and out.

What am I doing wrong? Thanks!

I've discovered if I change the queue type from default-small (the default which doesn't work) to default, it works. Terrible UI/UX guys.

There are 2 ways that I know of to do this, for real time, click on the interface in webfig and open it up, scroll to the bottom and you should have both a real time byte graph and a real time packet graph.

For non-volatile samples, set up graphing (webfig->tools-graphing) add all interfaces. Can be accesses from the interface graph on that page or best from webfig-> graphing (will pop a new window with a menu for all available graphs). Since the sample time defaults to 5 minutes it will take a while to populate.

Hope this helps!

PS: And of course you can always set up MRTG and monitor all interfaces remotely via SMNP.

I need it more granular than interfaces. Preferably by MAC/IP address.

Thanks!

you could enable snmp and use a third party site for monitoring ex www.odmon.com
it gives you a more granular graphic Hourly (1 Minute Average), Daily (5 Minute Average), Weekly (30 Minute Average), Monthly (2 Hour Average) and Yearly (1 Day Average)
i use this site because i don't want to write graphic data to the nand flash, and if i get power failures then the information is lost.

Does it have a per IP break down though?

If you want some free solution, then design your own using Linux base MRTG, but it do requires Manual handwork, or more suitably it should be called artwork ;)

Try this.

another but wordpress coding ruined it a lot :(
