Network connections

Network

Counts network connections on specific ports you specify. Also summarizes connections by type (udp, tcp, and unix).

Overview

This plugin will count network connections at the time it is run.

If you specify a list of ports, it will report the number of connections for those specific ports only. If you specify “all” for the ports option, this plugin returns the summary information (the udp, tcp, and unix breakdown) across all ports.

Note: this plugin does not work on OS X.
