Vnstat (Internet traffic monitoring & report - GB by month - ISP)

Hi,

http://wiki.contribs.org/Vnstat

I have an error here:

******************************************************
# $iface_list = array('eth0', 'eth1');
-bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('
******************************************************

How to fit that?

ourspolaire: you have to edit config.php that is a php file..

I've edited wiki's page because it was not clear

Stefano,

I edited the config.php file.

It works but not at 100%:

Every minutes I receive an email of Cron Daemon saying:

Error: Unable create database backup "/var/lib/vnstat/.eth0".



How can I fix that?

Could I remove the applications (uninstall) related to vnstat and then redo the install again?  How to do that?

edit /etc/cron.d/vnstat and change nobody to root

then restart cron service with
Code: [Select]
service crond restart

it should work

well, I think that you should edit your config.php and use eth0 and ppp0 interfaces

Ok I will test that.

Just in case:

How to uninstall everything about Vnstat?

Re: Vnstat (Internet traffic monitoring & report - GB by month - ISP)

To test, I did:

# vnstat -u -i eth0
# vnstat -u -i eth1
# vnstat -u -i ppp0
# vnstat -u -i bond0


Result:

# vnstat

                      rx      /      tx      /     total    /   estimated
 bond0: Not enough data available yet.
 eth1: Not enough data available yet.
 eth0:
         today     48.10 MiB  /   67.63 MiB  /  115.74 MiB  /     147 MiB

 ppp0: Not enough data available yet.



Strange:  ppp0 is not displayed.

I can confirm ppp0 is not showing, I've just set it up here and am seeing the same results..

Could we get this info added into the vnstat wiki page?

edit the  "/etc/cron.d/vnstat" config file and change "nobody" to "root"

then restart the cron service with

"service crond restart"


as that is what I also needed to do to get it to work.

How can I go about figuring out why my eth1 interface numbers are not updating?  Phpsysinfo shows the correct usage.

Update....If I manually run the following command it will update but if I do not manually run this command the application only updates the eth0 interface info??

# vnstat -u

Where do I find the script that is doing the updating to see if something is wrong the and only calling for the eth0 instead of both the eth0 & eth1 to both update?

Thanks in advance for any help.


Update at 9:52am    I am thinking the problem is in the file  -------/etc/sysconfig/vnstat--------


VNSTAT_OPTIONS="-i eth0"     (this was the original and it's only calling for the eth0 interface to be updated)   Do I just clear that line?

Update at 1:43pm   I seem to have it working and what I did was in the file listed above I changed the line to read
Quote
VNSTAT_OPTIONS="-u"
and now both interfaces seem to be consistantly updating for the past 4 hours.
