Monitoring network traffic

Problem
1-grid only monitors incoming and outgoing traffic going through a port, dedicated to the Dedicated Server via a switch. Detail about network traffic used by specific ports or applications is not monitored. An application is required to monitor traffic in more detail on the Dedicated servers

Solution
If you`d like to find out which process on your dedicated server is using the most traffic etc. We recommend you use NetLimiter.

Another program that we`ve tested is Capsa Network Analyzer. It displays traffic in logs files as well as via a dashboard to assist with troubleshooting high traffic utilisation.

Note: If you require monthly traffic usage:

1. Login to your Customer Zone

2. Click Services

3. Click Manage next to the dedicated server A detailed breakdown of data usage should appear. More open-source applications or tools can be found at http://ambitwire.com/index.html

If you require any further assistance or information please contact our Dedicated Server Department at support@1-grid.com or via telephone on 086 000 9584
