Thread: linux box hogs bandwith

    linux box hogs bandwith

    WE have a DSL connection in office with 5 static ip address. One is connect to a linux box which acts as a company server. and about 10 computer in group of three are connected to the other Ip address using a hub

    Offlate linux box has started hogging the entire bandwith. If we disconnect the linux box other machines can connect to the World Wide Web. But as soon as linux box is connected other machines cant connect to the Web.

    If we reboot the linux box, for 8 to 10 hrs every one can connect to the web but after that the entire network comes down.

    Well first off -- what is the Linux box doing? Or shall I say should be doing.

    There is no reason that your linux rig should be stealing all bandwidth.

    Hello,
    lets see what is taking all the bandwidth, open a terminal and type top. Also lets look at the file /var/log/messages and see what traffic is getting logged.

    Re:linux box hogs bandwith

    Is it acting as a gateway?

    What is your webserver's system specifications?

    Re:linux box hogs bandwith

    You really need to sniff your wire to see what exactly is going on. That should be the first and foremost thing. This way you'll know what protocol is acting up, where the traffic is originating from, and from that, be able to discern which app you need to trouble shoot. After all, any given protocol could be hogging your bandwith-- IP,ICMP,ARP, etc. When you deal with a bandwith issue, you need to begin troubleshooting at the physical and network layers before you begin looking at application layer problems.
