NagVis is a visualization addon for the well known network managment system Nagios.

NagVis can be used to visualize Nagios Data, e.g. to display IT processes like a mail system or a network infrastructure.

Set real maximum Bandwidth instead of Interface BW


i have the problem, that the maximal interface bandwidth is not in all cases the real bandwidth.
For Example:
Interface has 100Mbit, but the max. real Throughput is 10Mbit.
So the Map would show up the Traffic at 10% but in real it's max'd @ 100%.

It would be awesome if we can specify at an item whats the max bw is.

The Oldschool Tool: has such a feature - and i would love to use Nagvis if there would be such an Feature :-)

Thanks for the Hint. I will try this different plugin tomorrow and will report.

Another solution to your issue is to use a plug in that can change the bandwidth limit for you. There is a plug-in over at the Nagios Exchange that can provide a solution for you. The check_iftraffic64 plug in has support for setting the actual bandwidth limits over an interface and can even support different settings for in and out. For example if you are monitoring a Cable modem Internet connection that provides 50 MB/s down and 10 MB/s up but your measuring on a 100 MB/s interface then you'd do something like this: ' -H hostname -C sneaky -B -I 50 -O 10 -u m'. This is an update to the NagVis weathermap compatible check_iftraffic3 check, you can find it here:,-Stats-and-Bandwidth/check_iftraffic64/details
