    Default network monitoring kde

    Is there a way of getting a connection log of speeds or anyway of logging internet speeds, as have a friend that is using opens suse 12.3 and they should be on a 1mb connection with that speed, but just not getting it, and thier isp does not believer that they are not getting thoses speeds, so is there a way of like even recording the speed graph in kde?
    Freedom is power, all i have to do is know how to use it.

    Well the first thing i thought of is to use one or more of the DSL speed
    test web sites and screen capture it/them and send in an email to ISP.

    Thought of a different way, and used a screen recording program.

    Hello

    To obtain such information you may need to monitor you're router or network with some monitoring tool. There are lots of monitoring tools like Nagios, Zabbix, OpenNMS, PandoraFMS. I don't know much about them I've only had the chance to try Pandora out and it seems very easy to manage. It's an open source tool that can monitor networks and servers alike. I downloaded my version of pandora from the following webpage: http://pandorafms.com/Home/Home/?lang=en but I've seen it available on sourceforge as well.

    You can try the iptraf package

    Code:
    zypper se iptraf
    On 12.3 it is still iptraf afaik but 13.1 it became iptraf-ng
