  • 1.  report about bandwidth

    I was looking for a way to have a bandwidth report by sites or server group, but I haven't found a way.
    Have you ever got something similar?

    Dear Jesus,

    Thanks for reaching out on Imperva forum.

    We might not have historical data for each application, but here's a quick way to check live server group traffic. Just follow these steps:


    cat /proc/hades/*ServerGroupName/status

    Don't forget to replace "ServerGroupName" with the actual name of your server group. (We have folders in that directory with server group names)

    Hope this helps!

    This thread is a few months old, but we have customers who have implemented multiple different solutions to track what you're asking for.  Some of the solutions implemented that I recall are:


    1. scripts that output data to logs or another system for analysis
      1. eg.. MX Toolbox @
      2. Graffana Performance Dashboards @
    2. leverage reporting from load-balancer or other network devices monitoring those sites or server groups, etc.
    3. run a get-tech-info on the relevant gateway appliance, unpack the ZIP files, and review the status and performance data
      1. It's workable for troubleshooting purposes to understand what's happening, but it's a rolling 72-hour snapshot for the performance data, etc.  It might help when needed, but it may not be granular enough for your needs.
    4. A few customer "watch" commands or scripts observing dynamic data in the /proc/hades/ hierarchy that were able to be used to observe applicable bandwidth in real time that support and PS used for troubleshooting, etc.


    May I ask you, though, what's the objective?  What are you trying to accomplish with the data?
