Ubuntu :: Bandwidth Usage Monitoring With CONKY?

I'm using CONKY on Ubuntu 9.10, and trying to display network usage statistics for my 3G internet. I want to display something like the following:


UP : xxxMb DOWN : xxxMb
Past Week:----------------
UP : xxxMb DOWN : xxxMb
Past Month:---------------
UP : xxxMb DOWN : xxxMb

I have the following script for .conkyrc


${voffset 4}${font Liberation Sans:style=Bold:size=8}TELKOM 3G (${addr ppp0}) $stippled_hr${font}
Down: $color${downspeed ppp0} k/s ${alignr}Up: ${upspeed ppp0} k/s
${downspeedgraph ppp0 25,90 000000 ff0000} ${alignr}${upspeedgraph ppp0 25,90 000000 00ff00}$color

Ubuntu Networking :: Monitoring Bandwidth Usage On Lan?
Since this is my number 1 place for asking questions, I figured I would go here first. So I live in New Zealand where good internet doesn't exist yet, and I'm in a flat with 3 other people and we get 40gb a month which hasn't been lasting more than 2 weeks. It is somewhat of a mystery where all our data has gone, so I need a way to monitor usage. We use a variety of operating systems including linux, xp & windows 7 on my pc, and xbox 360. Is there any kind of integrated solution I can use to monitor everything with password protection so it can't be disabled? I have tried looking in the router, but it doesn't give me many statistics, and I think it combines lan with wan usage. At this stage I don't have the money to make a linux box to put between the router and the switch that can monitor everything, but if it comes to it, I will shell out for one.

Ubuntu :: Conky - Hourly Bandwidth Usage?
So, my mother is out in the deep country and all we can get is Xplornet Satellite internet. They have a fair access policy (FAP) that says they will (and definitely do) throttle your speeds if you download more than 50MB or upload more than 5.5MB in one hour. This restriction resets hourly. As you can imagine, this is fairly limiting, but we have to live with what we have as there are no other options specifically where we live. Right now, I have Conky configured to show the ${totalup wlan0} and ${totaldown wlan0}, but that is per session. In this example, since the computer started, 8.74MB have been downloaded and 1.95MB uploaded. However, this information is somewhat irrelevant as we really only need to know the current usage starting at the top of the hour. Maybe even show the previous hour too.

Networking :: Bandwidth Monitoring - Each Person Usage?
I have a server rack that I lease out to others. I need a way to monitor each persons bandwidth usage. How can I do this without installing software on their machines or disrupting traffic flow? I have no access to the router, as it is owned by the colo company. I do have access to the switch and firewall, as well as my machines (linux) on the rack.

Ubuntu Networking :: Monitoring Networked Computers Bandwidth Usage?
Back in school I remember using an application that would identify active IP addresses on a network, and basically show you a log of activity. We actually monitored another lab and went in and showed them what we saw (all the machines had IP addresses on the monitors.) We could see websites, bandwidth, etc.

I'm trying to find an application that would do this again. I've been trying to monitor my networks to see what machines are performing unauthorized operations. ISP is showing high bandwidth usage and there is no way checking email and browsing is using this amount, 200GB a month! Something is going on here.

Networking :: Bandwidth Monitoring - Log Based On Usage / Consumption?
Can you suggest bandwidth monitoring software for GUN/Linux that will log bandwidth based on usage/consumption.

Not options:
- slurm or any other "real time" bandwidth monitoring
- /sbin/ifconfig <interface> | grep "RX bytes" or the like

What do you use to monitor your monthly, daily, hourly bandwidth consumption (assuming that you do).

Debian :: Network Bandwidth Usage Monitoring Application?
I just wanted to use a network bandwidth usage monitoring application. Scenario: I am using an EV-DO based USB broadband modem with a limited GB plan. For additional data usage they charge per MB. Currently I use either wvdial (mostly) or pon to start the connection. So if there is any network monitoring application which could log time used and data used for the session, it would be great. Actually debian has too many different network monitoring applications, But I am not sure which one suits well for this purpose.

Software :: Virtual Host Bandwidth Usage Monitoring Apache
I've got an apache server running several virtual hosts. I have them separated by domain name, and they all come into the same IP address. I'm looking for a way to monitor the bandwidth that they use. The only feature that I'm really looking for is a breakdown of which domain is dishing out how much bandwidth. got three visitors this month. And spent 200kb in serving them. got fifteen. And spent 1mb in serving them. got 4000. and spent 400mb in serving them.What I would like to see is a report, could be a web page could be a file. Ideally with graphs. Showing:
3[400mb worth of dots]

I don't need it to show me how many visitors or from where or anything like that. I am just looking for a side by side comparison of how much bandwidth each domain is using.Is there some application for this or something. Everything that I've found has been for information on a single site (awstat and friends can show me information for multiple sites, but as far as I know it won't show me information comparing them) I haven't found anything for nagios, but perhaps there is something out there for it, or a sneaky way to make a nice plugin that would do this.

Networking :: Tools For Monitoring Network Bandwidth Usage Of Program/port?
I have a third party program (tightvnc) which I want to monitor and detect if it loses a connection with a client. I don't care if the client has the program open but isn't doing anything with it, I only want to know if the actual TCP connection is lost.

Since TCP takes forever to die on it's own I was thinking the best way to detect if a connection is lost is by bandwidth the bandwidth on the tcp port allocated to the VNC connection. Are there any tools built in to redhat (RHEL 5.2) which I could use to do this? Since I don't have full control of the operating system I would prefer to use built in tools rather then trying to get a new tool installed.

Ubuntu :: Bandwidth Monitoring Per IP?
My problem is the following : I have a certain Internet connection for a certain network. So many people are sharing this network. What i need is a software on Linux (preferably Ubuntu) that will enable me to monitor the bandwidth usage PER IP Like : ip x.x.x.x using 20Kb upload 200Kb download , connected to this site for example.. The main goal is to know from which IP is the high Upload traffic or download traffic is coming , because i have a certain quota and I'm always getting over the quota (in upload and download) and end up paying extra for the ISP , so i would need to know who is using lots of upload/download bandwidth .

Networking :: Bandwidth Monitoring Tool Uses Lot Of CPU Resources?
I have recently purchased dedicated box for game servers, I just wanted to install bandwidth monitoring software, however I have read comments regarding it as it uses lot of CPU resources. There is another method to monitor bandwidth using iptables. But that article is too complex for me: [URL]. I just want to check my overall bandwidth not from any particular ports. Any teaching commands to do that, as my new to Fedora. I use ssh to control my server.

Networking :: Bandwidth Monitoring Per Local User?
I have a Linux host connected via LAN to Internet. No proxy or squid is used on the host and outgoing traffic to Internet is not limited. I have several local users on this box. Recently bandwidth statistics on the switch/router showed increase in the Internet traffic from this host. How do I monitor the traffic utilization per local user on Linux host? I want to be able to monitor the amount of traffic per port and per user, like user alice downloaded 20GB today via port 22, and so on. Do not offer to use Squid, this is not just web traffic I want to monirot but all amount of incoming/outgoing traffic per user per port.

Ubuntu Networking :: Bandwidth Monitor Which Performs Constant Monitoring Of The Ethernet?
I want a bandwidth monitor which performs constant monitoring of the ethernet. I want to see how much bandwidth I am spending by opening each website, downloading, etc. A small program which can remain "always on top".

I am using Gkrellm but the problem is it does not updates itself constantly, I mean I have to close/open its eth0 monitoring window to view changes (I am not talking about restarting Gkrellm, only the bandwidth window which shows the daily, monthly bandwidths)

Now my questions: How to limit the bandwidth usage used by ubuntu updates in the above lines?

Ubuntu :: Program To Monitor Bandwidth Usage?
I live in the boonies, so I have satellite internet. It's not too bad, but I'm restricted to 200 mb's of download per day.

I'm looking for an app that will keep track of my usage, so I don't go over 200. I was using "System Monitor", but it's a little buggy, so I'd like to try something else.
