NAME

bandwidthd.conf - configuration file for bandwidthd

DESCRIPTION

The file, /etc/bandwidthd/bandwidthd.conf, is read by bandwidthd when started. It contains a small set of tunable options for bandwidthd features that can be adjusted.

OPTIONS

subnet <network> <netmask>
Subnet to log traffic for.
dev <device>
Device to listen on.
skip_intervals <n>
Number on intervals (2.5 minute) to skip between graphing. Default 0.
graph_cutoff <kilobytes-minimum>
Number of kilobytes required before drawing a graph for a host. Default 1024.
promiscuous <bool>
Put device in promisc ("eavesdropping") mode. Default true.
output_cdf <bool>
Write logfiles for analyzed traffic. Default false.
recover_cdf <bool>
Recover from logfiles after restart. Default false.
 
Warning: This can take very long time if the logfiles are big.
 
Enabling this and having bandwidthd start on system start might be a bad idea. It will delay your possibilities to log in locally since it's not done in the background.
filter <pcap-filter-rule>
Pcap filter rule to use. Always include "ip" to avoid weird problems. Default "ip".
graph <bool>
Write graphs and html for analyzed traffic. Default true.
meta_refresh <seconds>
Number of seconds before html-page reloads. 0 to disable. Default 150.
