Measure network bandwidth per process

Postby kaushalshriyan » Wed Apr 17, 2019 9:28 am

Hi,

Is there a way to measure network bandwidth per process in CentOS Linux release 7.6.1810 (Core) using Nagios Monitoring tool? I was reading about nethogs (https://github.com/raboof/nethogs) but it does not have the option to run it in daemon mode so that we can take a look at historical data to figure out the process which was consuming high network bandwidth instead it is a good tool for Live monitoring.

Please suggest. Thanks in Advance.

Best Regards,

Kaushal

Hello, @kaushalshriyan. As far as I know, we don't have a plugin that can measure process bandwidth utilization. But if you can set up some third party software that does it, like NetHogs, and have it output the information about the process from the command line, then it would be fairly easy to integrate this with a service check in Nagios.

We also have a separate product that can monitor bandwidth per interface, not per process though.
