The file, /etc/bandwidthd/bandwidthd.conf, is read by bandwidthd when started. It contains a small set of tunable options for bandwidthd features that can be adjusted.
- subnet <network> <netmask>
- Subnet to log traffic for.
- dev <device>
- Device to listen on.
- skip_intervals <n>
- Number on intervals (2.5 minute) to skip between graphing. Default 0.
- graph_cutoff <kilobytes-minimum>
- Number of kilobytes required before drawing a graph for a host. Default 1024.
- promiscuous <bool>
- Put device in promisc ("eavesdropping") mode. Default true.
- output_cdf <bool>
- Write logfiles for analyzed traffic. Default false.
- recover_cdf <bool>
Recover from logfiles after restart.
Warning: This can take very long time if the logfiles are big.
Enabling this and having bandwidthd start on system start might be a bad idea. It will delay your possibilities to log in locally since it's not done in the background.
- filter <pcap-filter-rule>
- Pcap filter rule to use. Always include "ip" to avoid weird problems. Default "ip".
- graph <bool>
- Write graphs and html for analyzed traffic. Default true.
- meta_refresh <seconds>
- Number of seconds before html-page reloads. 0 to disable. Default 150.
/etc/bandwidthd/bandwidthd.conf - configuration file. /etc/init.d/bandwidthd - startscript.
