How to get current port speed information ?


Hello, I need to get quick info for my script how many of my basic 100 Mbps port speed remain or is in use. I mean how many of my 100 Mbps speed is used by downloading, website (css, jpg, etc), movies watching on my website every second.

Have you got any reliable way to get this info ?

Thanks for help.

The following is for linux based servers

For general checking while I was testing streaming videos, I found IPTraf to be pretty decent (basic, but decent)

You can probably google it to find it, but if you are on an OS using yum, you can just do yum install iptraf

Then from shell, just enter iptraf (move around to find the monitoring you need)

You also can use iftop utility. It shows speed per connection or per ports, depends on filters you use.

With IP Traf, what I did was sit and watched the the network while myself and 4 other people that I know to have decent connections all hit my server to start streaming a video of of it, kept watching it to do a rough guess on an average.

It was very basic and very quick, but gave me a good rough estimate to see how many people at once could stream the video from my server since I had a client interested in getting his own server for videos (In the end, I convinced the customer to use Vimeo, especially once they started their new business plan)
