This report shows the average bandwith usage distibution of network interfaces, for a given hostgroup.

How to interpret the report?

First page

On the first page, we can see the bandwidth usage ranges in percent by interval.

Intervals are:

  • Null usage
  • Low usage
  • Average usage
  • High usage
  • Very high usage

These intervals are configurable.


Next pages

The next pages are automatically generated for all interfaces of the selected hostgroup ( one page per interface). Each page dispays the bandwidth usage by inetrval with a repartition by:

  • Hour of the day
  • Day of the week
  • Day of the month

Parameters :

Parameters needed by the report are :

  • The reporting perriod.
  • The following Centreon objects :
Parameter Parameter type Description
Groupe d’hôtes Dropdown list Host group to use
Host Categories Multi select Host categries to use
Service Categories Multi select Service categories to use
Low level treshold (%) Number Low threshold of bandwidth usage (between 0 and 100)
Average level threshold (%) Number Average threshold of brandwidh usage (between 0 and 100)
High level threshold (%) Number High threshold of brandwidh usage (between 0 and 100)
Inbound traffic metric Dropdown list Metric name of the inbound traffic
Outbound traffic metric Dropdown list Metric name of the outbound traffic

Prerequisites :

To ensure consistency in graphs and statistics, some prerequisites are necessary regarding to performance data returned by plugins.

Performance data are data returned by a plugin after the “pipe” - “|” , these data have to be returned as follow:

output-plugin | traffic_in=valueunit;warning_treshold;critical_treshold;minimum;maximum traffic_out=value

It is important to make sure that plugins return the maximum value because lot of statistics are based on percentage, calculated using this maximum value. Be sure that the traffic plugins return one metric for traffic in and one for traffic out. The unit must be Bits/sec.
