Server :: How Much Bandwidth Goes To Various Computers In Small Network?
Jun 4, 2010
I'm looking for a program that I can use to keep track of how much bandwidth goes to the various computers in my small network.All of the bandwidth goes through my squid server, so the easiest would be to just have a program that can accurately analyze the squid logs and tell me how much bandwidth is going to the different computers.I've tried both "bandwidthd" and "calamaris" I can't figure out how to get either one to actually do anything in Ubuntu.
I am connected with LAN. We have many computers with different OS viz.linux, windows etc. Now I want to know the bandwidth every computer is getting and using. Is there any Ubuntu packages to monitor this?
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.
im trying to connect two computers on lan.One computer has: VMWare Workstation and has Opensuse 11.3 mounted in it.The other computer has: VMWare Player and has Opensuse 11.3 mounted in it.Both computers are connected to a switch with cables.I have followed this guide in both computers:Depanati singuri calculatorul!: Opensuse 11.3 - configure local networkin order to setup a network.In one computer, if i go to: Computer---Network---Network folder, i only see one machine. When in fact i could see both of them right
I am setting up my home network. Currently, I have one computer (Munchen) which I have set in my router to receive SSH requests. This works just fine; I can SSH into that box from anywhere. I just put together a new computer, which I want to be a file repository, my ftp server, my http server, etc. What I would like is to be able to SSH into that machine from anywhere, then SSH into the other computers on that network from there.
Here is where I really don't understand the concept of what is going on. I can SSH past the router into one computer just fine either from anywhere (that makes sense to me). I can SSH from my new computer (Chemnitz) into Munchen (which is where the router points to and is running sshd) by using its local IP address, but I can't go from Munchen to Chemnitz (even though the server is running and the firewall should be allowing the connection). [URL]
Details of the system setup are below. Munchen (receives all port 22 requests now) Ubuntu 10.04 Chemnitz (I want to receive all port 22 requests and SSH into other computers on the network from it. Ultimately it will be a file sharing box, hosting a webpage, running an ftp server, etc.) Fedora 14
How to configure DNS server for my small network. In Fedora Linux operating system I want to use Linux as a DNS server for my small office. there are files " /etc/hosts" and "/etc/resolv.conf ".
what is the purpose of these files and in which situation we use these files? For configuring a new DNS server. how can i configure my own DNS server for my small office? Any blog or site in which they show steps to configure DNS server.
I will cut to the chase. I am running three ubuntu computers on my local network:my desktop which runs ethernet, and two laptops which run wireless on the same network, and all from the same router. For purpose of this thread, I am concentrating on this one issue with pulse(assuming its pulse doing this). When I have two computers running at the same time, or even all three, I can hear bursts of sound coming from the other computer, not all the time, but consistently. I don't know what is causing this. I've searched hi and low in all ubuntu pulse audio forums and those mentioning pulseaudio and I have not seen this issue posted anywhere. Most threads deal with issues of not being able to get pulse to recognise audio from one computer to the other...mine is just the opposite...I'M TRYING TO STOP THIS FROM HAPPENING!...... If I'm listening to my music on my desktop, I don't want to hear what my son is playing on his laptop...and vice versa. all the computers at my home are running lucid lynx, latest updates and latest approved kernel as of the date of this post. 2.6.32-26-generic.
I have a debian home server right now, I'm using samba for my file server but I was wanting to stream my movies and music to my other computers. My family (the other users on the network) are NOT computer savvy, and to top it off they are using both Windows (xp) and Mac (Snow Leopard) machines. So I'm looking for software that is simple to use that will allow other operating systems to use it. I would think the easiest way would be to stream the music/movies through a home website. I have seen quite a few programs out there that stream music, but none for movies.
I have installed a linux server in my office to run 16 machines. Its main use will be a internal mail server but will be also running websites.
I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 server x64 and have got apache running.
I am looking for the simplest more robust solution for smtp, pop3 and imap. I have only ever used qmail before and found it a pain to configure and its getting old so I though I should probably try something new. I have not much experience with running pop3 or imap on linux so would love a suggestion on that.
I created a the class like this for shaping the packets with a specified bandwidth rate.....
tc qdisc del dev eth0 root tc qdisc add dev eth0 root handle 1: htb default 15 tc class add dev eth0 parent 1:0 classid 1:1 htb rate 750kbit ceil 750kbit tc class add dev eth0 parent 1:1 classid 1:3 htb rate 600kbit ceil 750kbit prio 0
For Our Requirement:-
I dont want to specify the bandwidth rate strictly like this rate750kbit ceil 750kbit,based on whatever speed is coming which should allocate the bandwidth rate for particular class...I need one application for finding the upcoming bandwidth & Is any other method is there for specify the bandwidth rate in a classes.
I Own a netcafe and I want to limit the netspeed for some of the users on the network because some of them maybe use torrent or other ways to eat the bandwidth and the net became so slow for other users.
My task is a way to limit the net speed for some users on the network, I tried a mikrotik RouterOS but it look like a miss to install I wanted an easier way than this, I use linux or windows or any OS to make this task done please help me to do it !!
I'm looking for a tool to control network bandwidth (per application i.e. totem), something like trickle (a userspace bandwidth shaper).Trickle is a bit outdated, latest ver. 1.0.6 (2003), and it won't compile under -current. There's a slackbuild available, dated 2004.
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.
I am wondering why I used to pull a much faster download and upload (approx 20 down 3 up). Now I only get 2 down and barely 1 up). I am not sure why this happened. Any ways to check on this? Just this one, dell d505 running suse 11.2. All other WiFi computers are pulling bandwidth as expected.
Is there a way in Linux to give a specific application more/less priority for network bandwidth? Something like how nice does for CPU priority.
Context: I'm currently on a very low bandwidth connection (3G dongle). While I'm performing a quite large upgrade using aptitude, it becomes virtually impossible to browse the web since the upgrade download is hogging my Internet connection.
So what I would like to do is somehow decrease the network bandwidth priority of the aptitude process (and all its children) so that it won't use too much bandwidth while another process is using it.
I have a network connection between 3 computers sharing the same net bandwidth with the same router (modem), I wanted to know how much every one of this network taking from the bandwidth, I want an easy program like switch-sniffer (see the pic) to scan the network and tell me how much every one taking from this network in real time.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 and all was well on my home network until a household member decided to get a laptop and jump on my network. All he does is watch videos on ....., download crap from P2P sites, and maybe even watch p0rn. Is there something I can use to control this or maybe set my router to give him the minimum resources available? Also, I want to block him from downloading junk from P2P sites or places he might get a virus. I'm on a D-Link DGL 4500 Router.
I want to create a small network of 3-5 computers. I want to have one computer as my server and have services like NFS, DHCP, NTP, etc. I want to connect it to 2-4 other clients that have the bare minimal installation of linux on them. I would like 1 client computer to have a static ip address and I would like another to receive a dynamic ip address from the server. How would I go about doing all of this without the assistance of GUI's? I want to be able to do all this with the ks.cfg and network config files.
I setup a server with vmware esxi 4. I installed opensuse 11.2 and I have successfully setup an internet gateway and I manually configured (static) my client IP. My question is, is there any software or commands that I could use to manage the bandwidth usage for each client? eg. only 5Mbps for 192.168.1.5, 10Mbps for 192.168.1.10, etc
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.
if there is a way to determine the external ip of other computers on a network. For example, if someone is sending malicious emails and you identify the ip that sent the email by looking at the original, is there a way from the terminal to figure out which computer on your network it was?
i am currently running Ubuntu 9.10 on my laptop, and the 9.10 netbook remix on my HP Mini. I have set up a Samba connection, so I can access the files from my laptop from the netbook, but I am wondering about software to make synchronization of particular folders in my home folder easier, especially since with my setup now, if I access my laptop's home folder from the netbook, I can see all the folders, including the hidden ones!
I am looking for a way to deploy Linux in the same manner as a MS network. I want my desktop clients to authenticate against a DC, but Im not sure what would take the place of a Domain Controller in Linux. In addition, I am not sure if I could be able to manage user rights via a central server.
I have read about Samba as a domain controller, but Im not sure if that is what I want. In addition, I have read about LDAP, but again Im not sure if that is what I need to use. When I researched RADIUS servers, I was even more confused.
Small office... 20-30 computers all windows based. xp/vista/windows 7. 3 Servers running ubuntu 10.04... 1 domain controller, and two file servers with samba. We want to be able to login once in the morning, and then not have to worry about users/passwords at all throughout the day. So I was thinking that I could setup a PDC and then make the two filservers both BDC's and use ldap to authenticate everything. Would this even work out? and is there a better way to do it?
