Configuration Parameters

The plugin supports the following configuration parameters:

Key Description
Interface Specify the network interface to monitor. e.g. eth0
Interval_Sec Polling interval (seconds). default: 1
Interval_NSec Polling interval (nanosecond). default: 0
Verbose If true, gather metrics precisely. default: false

Getting Started

In order to monitor network traffic from your system, you can run the plugin from the command line or through the configuration file:

Command Line

Configuration File

In your main configuration file append the following Input & Output sections:

[INPUT]
    Name          netif
    Tag           netif
    Interval_Sec  1
    Interval_NSec 0
    Interface     eth0
[OUTPUT]
    Name   stdout
    Match  *

Note: Total interval (sec) = Interval_Sec + (Interval_Nsec / 1000000000).

e.g. 1.5s = 1s + 500000000ns
