List of Plugins

The OpenVPN plugin reads the status file printed by OpenVPN, an open source SSL VPN solution. If OpenVPN is configured to run in Server mode (sometimes known as multi mode, too), RX and TX statistics for each connected client are collected. If compression is activated, compression statistics are collected.
