hi eric

Thanks for the info, but we are currently using check_bandwidth, but i had found a check_snmp_int plugin, this plugin has more closer value from our cacti server than check_bandwidth.

Hi,

If you can use snmp then you'll be able to get lots more information for sure, you're correct about that. Does this mean that plugin suits your needs? Or do you have any other doubts?

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi Eric

Right now, I am still monitoring this plugin until a attack like ddos come, but as of now I think is more accurate with plotted graph on cacti, also i want to have another plugin to check in/out traffic because check_bandwidth seems to have a problem, in/out values are always the same, it is more higher values than cacti graph
