How do I calculate the data throughput in mbps for connector?

Trying to find out how I can calculate the data throught for One Connector?

So, I right click on connector and send the command to get status. below is part of the log i get?

Re: How do I calculate the data throughput in mbps for connector?

Hi,

have you tried using "Wireshark"? this software measures the data rate (bytes/sec) in the Ethernet network (IP packets) between connector and manager. However, from my point of view, all this amount of bytes does not belong only to the events, since there is more information sent from the connector to the manager; so my question is: how is possible to obtain the rate related only to the events?in other words: due to we can obtain the rate in events /sec, is possible to know the size in bytes of an event and in this way to calculate the rate in bytes/sec?

BR, Christian.

Actually I did use wireshark, it was quite feasible and managable. But going back to your second question, it was a bit hard to to filter out "junk" and we kind of ignored that to get a average.

It depends on the events, but it usually works out to be about 1mbps for every 2000 EPS.

The capinfos tool is helpful for finding the exact bandwidth used.

Re: How do I calculate the data throughput in mbps for connector?

Hi, thanks for the help, but I still have one problem that I would like to solve:

I have read that for Windows connectors the average size of one event is 500 bytes, but I am interesting in knowing about UNIX as well. Does anybody know about this?

Thanks in advance. BR, Christian.

Christian, I dont know about Unix that much, but this post might be useful ... https://protect724.arcsight.com/message/11050#11050 work with you unix admin to get the best answer.
