Hi all,

I have a strange problem.
I use nmon to monitor the network traffic on a server with two NICs. The problem is, that the second device is not being monitored, so I cannot see how much traffic goes over the device.

So is there a setting / switch to turn on / off this feature (traffic logging)?

BTW: The device works well, everything seems to be fine, except the logging of the traffic.

Thanks for fast helping.

Best regards

Nephlim

Ethereal and tcpdump can capture ANY interface

ethereal -i any
tcpdump -i any

Thanks for the info, but that is not the problem.

The logger works fine, but no packets get logged on the device eth1. But there is a lot of traffic for sure!
So why the device does not log any traffic?? Is there a possibility to enable this?

Thanks for fast help...
