Network traffic on Ubuntu 12.04.01 LTS



Dear Paessler,

We have serveral linux servers and I was wondering how I could accomplish to monitor the network card. According to your list it's possible to get the information out of the network card: https://www.paessler.com/knowledgebase/en/topic/6733-which-linux-or-mac-os-distributions-are-supported-by-the-linux-unix-sensors-ssh-snmp-wbem

If there is any information that you need, please let me know so I can submit it.

Kind regards, Martijn

thank you very much for your KB-Post. The easiest way should be doing this with the SNMP Daemon running on the ubuntu targets. And then using SNMP Traffic Sensors.

best regards.
