Description

The Protocols plugin collects information about the network protocols supported by the system, for example Internet Protocol (IP) and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). Currently the plugin is only available under Linux and reads its information from the following two files in the /proc file-system:

  • /proc/net/snmp
  • /proc/net/netstat

Because the available information is usually far too much to be useful, the interesting values can be selected using the configuration file.
