NAME

kvm_net - Munin plugin to show the network I/O per VM

APPLICABLE SYSTEMS

Virtualization server with VMs based on KVM may be able to track the network traffic of their VMs, if the KVM processes are started in a specific way.

Probably proxmox-based virtualization hosts fit into this category.

You can easily check if your KVM processes are started in the expected way, by running the following command:

  ps -ef | grep "netdev.*ifname="

The plugin can be used, if the above command outputs one line for every currently running VM.

In all other cases you need to use other munin plugins instead, e.g. "libvirt".

CONFIGURATION

parsed environment variables:

  * vmsuffix: part of vm name to be removed
