NAME bandwidthd.conf - configuration file for bandwidthd
DESCRIPTION The file, /etc/bandwidthd/bandwidthd.conf, is read by bandwidthd when started. It contains a small set of tunable options for bandwidthd features that can be adjusted.
OPTIONS subnet <network> <netmask> Subnet to log traffic for. dev <device> Device to listen on. skip_intervals <n> Number on intervals (2.5 minute) to skip between graphing. Default 0. graph_cutoff <kilobytes-minimum> Number of kilobytes required before drawing a graph for a host. Default 1024. promiscuous <bool> Put device in promisc ("eavesdropping") mode. Default true. output_cdf <bool> Write logfiles for analyzed traffic. Default false. recover_cdf <bool> Recover from logfiles after restart. Default false. Warning: This can take very long time if the logfiles are big. Enabling this and having bandwidthd start on system start might be a bad idea. It will delay your possibilities to log in locally since it's not done in the back‐ ground. filter <pcap-filter-rule> Pcap filter rule to use. Always include "ip" to avoid weird problems. Default "ip". graph <bool> Write graphs and html for analyzed traffic. Default true. meta_refresh <seconds> Number of seconds before html-page reloads. 0 to disable. Default 150.
