check_eth is showing too much RX Byte

Postby sahibzadafahad99 » Mon Oct 01, 2018 12:59 am

i have installed uniqush on my centos server where i am using nrpe plugins check_eth to monitor bandwidth usage of my uniqush server. It shows 189GB RX byte which is too much if i compare to rest of my server where also nrpe plugins check_eth is installed. Can anyone please help me why it is showing too much RX byte?

I'm not familiar with this plugin but this looks like the total bytes transmitted by the interface.

Looking at the plugin it parses the following command, can you run it on this server and post the output

Code: Select all
cat /proc/net/dev
