Measuring the Mbps

Hi,

looking at the "Portable Product Sheets - Routing Performance" I noticed the 2821 supports 87 Mbps of cef switching. I was wondering if there's a way to measure how many of that capacity (87 Mbps) I'm currently using. I was thinking about cpu utilization, but what I've tried doesn't seem to work. If anyone knows a method to measure how many of that 87 Mbps I'm currently using, it would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Daniel

Re: Measuring the Mbps

Hello Daniel,

you just need to sum up the input and output rates on all router interfaces

the number provided in datasheet is raw, 10 Mbps bidirectional traffic counts like 10+10 = 20

load-interval 30

on each interface may help in having more responsive counters

Hope to help

Re: Measuring the Mbps

So, with a simple show interfaces summary, it should work?

Thanks a lot for your answer.

Ever considered some network management tool to see graphically your bandwidth usage ?

No, I didn't think about it. Can anyone recommend a network management tool? I would be better if it's open source.

Thanks a lot for the idea.

Daniel
