host_traffic

Sadly there is no documentation for this plugin

#!/bin/bash

# Plugin to monitor traffic rate to specific host.
#
# Requirements:
#	- tcpdump
#	- should be run as root or any other user for tcpdump
#
# Parameters supported:
#	config
#	autoconf
#
# Configurable variables
#
#	type       - monitor type. Available values: packets, bytes. Defaults to packets because it's faster
#	hostname   - mandatory. Hostname (ip) to monitor connections to. Actually just a part of tcpdump expr.
#                    Thus a hack: '1.2.3.4 and port 80' will monitor port 80 only. Bingo!
#	interface  - self-explanatory
#
# IMPORTANT! This plugin spawns 'tcpdump' process along with bash shell piping tcpdump output there
# PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO KILL when removing plugin/stopping/etc. You can kill any of three, the others should die
