New Nagios plugin: check_win_net_usage

Written by - 4 comments

Published on - Listed in Nagios Windows Network Monitoring

As previously already mentioned, I was working on a new plugin to monitor Windows network usage/traffic/bandwidth.
Well, actually it is more a wrapper than a plugin because it makes use of check_nt, which itself is already a plugin.

The main purpose of check_win_net_usage is certainly to be able to create graphics where incoming and outgoing network traffic are shown (in one and the same graph).

More details, documentation and download can be found on the page of check_win_net_usage.

Hello Frank, hmm... i'm sorry but I do not see the problem. Maybe the interface name is wrong, but you would have to verify this on the target Windows system. Also verify the values/field names in the "Performance" GUI.

Hello Frank. Hmm... unfortunately I currently do not manage Windows systems anymore so I cannot tell for sure. But can you show the arguments you pass to check_win_net_usage (show the command line usage)? Maybe this changed in Win2k8 R2 and it is not called "Bytes Sent/sec" anymore?
