Looking for a way to monitor the amount of network traffic on a hpux 11iv3 server

Good morning all;

Need to find a way to determine how much network traffic is coming in and going out of our production servers. Does anyone out there have a way from the server side to gather this in mgbytes/per sec format.

Thank you in advance for your input.

Shalom Norm,

netstat -i

It will give you a basic look based on number of packets.

You might try playing with glance or the gui gpm.

Otherwise you may need a third party utility for the job.

Hello Steven;

A couple of questions, is there a way to reset the counters that netstat is reading?

How can I determine the packet size?


Thank you

> netstat -i

Or for much better details use:

lanadmin -g

where lanID is the number in lan0, lan2, lan6, etc. NOTE: Except for 10Mbit (old) networks, there will be no collisions or other errors in the second half of the report. To reset the counters, use:

lanadmin -c

To get actual bytes/second (along with everything you need to monitor your system's performance), purchase a copy of Glance.
