Archived entries for bandwidth

FreeBSD view bandwidth and total bytes transferred for interface

Always installed nload on the server for which I wanted to view the bandwidth usage on.

But there’s preinstalled not-so-fancy-but-usable utility for FreeBSD:

systat -ifstat 1


Mikrotik simple bandwidth control

There’s a really easy way of controlling bandwidth of an interface (e.g. guest interface).

It’s done via queues:
/queue simple add interface=guest max-limit=2M/2M disabled=no

Where “guest” is the interface name and 2M is the down/uplink speed in bps you want to shape it to.
