Incorrect Bandwidth statistics

‎04-06-2009 12:28 PM

Hi Guys;

 

Could someone tell me why I'm getting all zeros in the Interface bandwidth output in my SSGs ?? I'm pretty sure that an important amount of traffic is passing through these firewalls.

 

 

Set_HA:SetFW_CH_01(M)-> get int

A - Active, I - Inactive, U - Up, D - Down, R - Ready

Hello,

 

The bandwidth output here is the the configured / allocated bandwidth as QoS, not the "ordinary" traffic.

 

You can use "get count stat" to see the traffic counters.

Igor

Hello

 

You can also see the interface bandwidth under Reports > Interface Bandwidth

Initially you wont see anything.

Run this command 'set traffic-shaping mode on'

You will see the numbers increasing under total utilised BW.

 

 

Cheers,
Roger

I think if you want to enable this command, you need to be aware that you are turning on traffic shaping.

This will definitely add additional processing onto CPU as well as all packets are sent to the traffic shaping queue for processing thus adding an additional bucket for incoming and outgoing packets.

What it effectively does is that if not traffic-shaping configuration has been setup, all traffic is prioritzed the same.

 

So, if you really do not intend to do traffic shaping, it may not be something you want to enable!

Hi;

 

I'm not currently using traffic shaping.

 

Thanks anyway for the useful info 🙂
