    Default Network Traffic Management Tools


    Yeah. There's a lot of traffic running through all the wires and through
    the air at my place.
    Lately I've been looking for a good tool for monitoring ALL my traffic
    on one machine. Means if I have traffic running through my virtual
    machine (Windows), that traffic shoul be counted as well.
    The tool should measure up- as well as download and be able to give a
    warning when reaching a certain traffic limit.


    Tell me which tools are "best". A neat graphical interface wouldn't
    hurt as well.

    Surprise me!

    Not sure it meets all those requirements but

    knemo

    In packman - well it used to be.
    You then need to configure it from control centre, config desktop, -
    whatever depends if you are kde3 kde4 or gnome

    Hi.
    I mostly use iptraf and iftop. When you want a nice gui try bandwidthd.
    Ksysguard shows a plot of upstream an downstream as well. Unfortunately,
    none of the tools mentioned can send a warning, I think.

    Um... that's not good. I really need a great tool with warning ability.
    I'm still trying a few products. If someone else comes up with a good
    solution - always welcome to hear.

    Others might get interested too. Please don't hesitate to post. ^^

    Um... I feel like I need to push this. I am still looking forward for a
    great hint on a piece of software that spits out a warning when reaching
    a certain limit.
    Does any of the above have a warning feature?

    Guys, I am sad to need to force this topic again.
    I am looking for the following (but can't find it anywhere):

    *-A network traffic monitor that...-*
    -spits out a warning when reaching a certain traffic limit
    -is able to monitor up- as well as downloads
    -has a good GUI
    -saves stats automatically and...
    -summs up weekly, monthly and yearly totals.
    -it should be easy to configure and be compatible with the KDE
    environment

    Please take a look at 'NETMETER'
    (http://www.metal-machine.de/readerror/), an awesome tool for windows
    users to see what I am talking about here.

    I think there is no program like NetLimiter - it's such a great tool.
    This is Linux. Sometimes you need to hack if you want eXtraz.
    I wrote a blog post about net-limiting a long time ago:
    'News from Planet OS-88: Traffic Limit on Linux'
    (http://akoskm.blogspot.com/2009/01/t...-on-linux.html).

    I think, I'll keep writing more HOW-TOs.

    ps.:I've stared to write an interface for it in Java.
