Hi,

I have successfully installed D-Link DWL-120a wireless USB network adapters, under RedHat 9, on several PCs.

There are three (I think!) different device driver solutions. It seems that they all work but I want to know if any of the three are better than the others.

So, can anyone suggest a simple ethernet traffic monitor (preferably but not essentially GUI) that I can use for such testing?? I just want to measure the overall throughput over a certain period, say 10 minutes, of transferring files across the network.

Thanks and regards,

Geoff.

you can use GKrellM.

you can also use MRTG if you setup snmp on the redhat machine.

Thanks for the tips.

I got GKrellM to work fine and the graphical display is very nice but it I was after a utility that provided max/min/ave throughput numbers.

I couldn't get MRTG to work (but I am pretty new to linux).

Any others?

Geoff
