I’m getting hammered enough that I thought it might be prudent to install some software to figure out just how hard I am getting hammered. Voila, courtesy of rrdtool and SNMP.
I started downloading an ISO image, which is why the green line peaks up so high, but the perilous bit is actually the blue line. In theory, I can get a bit more than 30KBps on the uplink, but significant fractions of that rate make my cable modem slow.
I’ll probably tune up the script I use to monitor this, and may make it a regular feature here on brainwagon.
