Hostgroup-Traffic-average-By-Interface

Description

This report shows the average inbound and outbound bandwith usage of network interfaces for a given host group.

How to interpret the report

First page

On the first page, we can see the distribution of bandwidth usage in percent per interval.

Intervals are:

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

These intervals are configurable.

Following pages

The following pages are automatically generated for all interfaces of the selected host group (one page per interface). Each page dispays the bandwidth distribution by:

Hour of the day displaying:

  • The average usage by hour of the day of incoming and outgoing traffic for the selected reporting period.
  • The maximum reached of incoming and outgoing traffic per hour of the day for the reporting period.

Day of the week displaying

  • The average usage by day of the week of incoming and outgoing traffic for the selected reporting period.
  • The maximum reached of incoming and outgoing traffic per day of the week for the reporting period.

Day of the month displaying

  • The average usage by day of the month of incoming and outgoing traffic for the selected reporting period.
  • The maximum reached of incoming and outgoing traffic per day of the month for the reporting period.

Parameters

Parameters required for the report:

  • Reporting period
  • The following Centreon objects:
Parameter Parameter type Description
Hostgroups Dropdown list Select host group.
Host Categories Multi select Select host categories.
Service Categories Multi select Select service categories.
Low level treshold (%) Number Specify low threshold of bandwidth usage (between 0 and 100)
Average level treshold (%) Number Average threshold of brandwidh usage (between 0 and 100).
High level treshold (%) Number Specify high threshold of bandwidth usage (between 0 and 100).
Inbound traffic metric Dropdown list Specify metric of inbound traffic.
Outbound traffic metric Dropdown list Specify metric of outbound traffic.
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 trafic plugins return thione metric for traffic in and one for traffic out. The unit must be Bits/sec.

Prerequisites

For consistency in graphs and statistics, certain prerequisites apply to performance data returned by the storage plugins. This data must be formatted as follows, preceded by a pipe (|):

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

Make sure the plugins return the maximum value, which is required in order to calculate statistics. The storage plugins must return one metric for traffic in and one for traffic out. Units must be in Bits/sec.
