Bandwidth Monitoring Solution

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone.

I'm looking for some sort of free and/or open source software to monitor my network utilization from my firewall (ubiquiti Edge Router Lite). I can use either SNMP or NetFlow, but am having trouble finding good software. I want something that I can have graphs to view overtime (in and out bandwidth over a week, month, year, etc), and some sort of NMS solution would be cool too. I was using Cacti, but don't care for it. OpenNMS seems like a good choice, but it's more complicated than I am looking for.

What are some other options out there? I will likely run the software in a Linux VM.

Thanks!

Thanks, but I'm looking for more than just a NetFlow monitor. I installed Observium last night, and so far I like it. I'm just having some issues with my cron.d jobs running the poller script, well it's not running the script actually. Seems to work nicely otherwise. It also does great polling SNMP on my servers to show me CPU and RAM utilization, as well as my storage scenarios. Configuring some alerts to send out via email and it should do what I want, as long as I can fix that cron.d problem.
