Why None Of These Programs Work On a VPS?


I'm trying to check my server's bandwidth usage in real time, installed the following programs but none worked so far.

Iptraf - No results even when using iptraf -u
Tcptrack - Error : pcap_loop: cooked-mode frame doesn't have room for sll header
Iftop - No results, everything 0b

Are there any programs that displays bandwidth usage in real time and actually works on VPSes? Or getting real time bandwidth usage on a VPS is simply impossible?

Thanks.

That's going to depend on what the interfaces represent themselves
as, I'll guess. Got shell? What's the result of
ifconfig
?

All the network interfaces are in the format "venet0:X", and below is the output of ifconfig :

So what happens when you try

Code:
iptraf -s venet0
(seeing as it's the one with the most traffic I'll assume it's what
your server talks on the big bad world)?

Yeah, It returned the following :

Code:
Specified interface not supported
Press a key to continue
Guess there's no other way / workarounds expect getting a *real* dedicated box?

Dunno ... you may look at something like using iptables & the ulog
target to get your totals. Or check whether you can get the other
tools to play with that interface.
