Hi, we have three application servers(part of a cluster of the same application) reporting over 200 millions of ip packets received in the IP utilisation report; we have compare those values with other servers including servers of the same application and the values are around the hundreds at much thousands in some cases. We would like to know what can we do to find out why these values ar so high?
At the moment We're having incidents with the application so this caught our attention.
gregory, do you mean the "IP Utilisation" graph/panel in NMIS? if so, are you certain that you're seeing Millions and not millis? (the default unit autoscaling system in rrdtool as used by NMIS does postfix readings with automatic SI/ISO unit suffixes, which can be confusing at times - this is documented here: NMIS8 Graphs Showing letters after the numbers in the y-axis
if that is not where you're seeing the problem, could you please provide a screenshot?
