The ip_ plugin suggests ip addresses based on rules in your iptables.
You can run:
$ sudo munin-run --servicedir=/usr/share/munin/plugins ip_ suggest
to see what IPs it's suggesting. If they look odd, perhaps check your
Ok, it is indeed suggesting I track that ip number, but I do not want to track any ip-number. SO I
probably just need to remove that link.
And why am I seeing only stats for eth1 and eth3? What happened to eth0, eth2 and eth5?
The if_ and if_err_ plugins look in /proc/net/dev for interfaces to
monitor. Perhaps those devices weren't there when you ran suggest?
Well here is the kicker, *I* never ran munin-node-configure suggest, I assume that was what the
default munin-node script did when it was started for the first time.
To see what plugins may be suitable for your system, run:
$ sudo munin-node-configure --suggest
For more details, you might want to start reading here:
I have read that page and a lot is clear now but.... is there a way to simply have munin-node run
the scrip that set up the pugins for the first time based on what is there now? I have been unable
to find how to do that. When I run munin-node-configure I just get a screen full of options with
yes/no, I cannot change anything. The same with the suggest option.
The wiki page suggests I create/remove a lot of symlinks by hand, which I could do if most of the
default values are wrong, but they are not.
I would very much like to know how to symply have all/most symlinks created by default and then edit
the result where needed.
