pps or packets per second monitor



  • Is there a place to see the actual pps?
    I searched the forum and could not find anything.

    Thanks

    There isn't an easy way to get a "live" view of the PPS.

    You can see the long term values under Status > Monitoring in the Packets graphs there.

    If you setup SNMP you could monitor PPS for interfaces that way, how you do that depends on your SNMP monitoring setup. There are some desktop SNMP programs that approximate "real-time" views around, like ones from Solarwinds.

    You can get an approximate pps value from pf as well. It isn't exact, but if you go to Diagnostics > pfinfo and look for the State Table section. In there, find the line for searches and look at the Rate column. That can give you a rough idea.



  • thank you so much, the graph in Monitoring section was exactly what I was looking for.
