Measuring traffic on logical interfaces with 2.5.1 - Possible?

Measuring traffic on logical interfaces with 2.5.1 - Possible?

Post by Mike Carls » Tue, 01 Sep 1998 04:00:00

     I'm using Solaris 2.5.1 with a number of logical interfaces on le0.
I've been trying to use MRTG to monitor the traffic to/from them, but it
appears that Solaris only reports the info in one lump sum for the
physical interface.

     Can anyone tell me if it is possible to get the traffic info for
each interface and how?



P.S.  Don't forget to erase REMOVETHIS before emailing me.


1. Possible to measure CPU used by Ethernet interface?

The server on my LAN is used as a gateway to the Internet.  Is it
possible to measure how much CPU time is consumed by the traffic on a
given Ethernet device?

Since the net traffic is not associated with a single process, top
doesn't tell me anything.  I can view /proc/interrupts to see the
interrupt count for each device or ifconfig to see the packet counts,
but that doesn't tell me how much of a burden the CPU is running

Thank you.
