Advertisement

Slurm is basically a network monitoring tool. It lets you monitor the traffic on your network interfaces, this traffic monitoring and analysis becomes very vital in many situations, particularly if you are performing analysis. It is a real-time, command line utility so it comes in handy for those who work on remote Linux servers and have to take care of such things often.

Installing it is very simple, open the terminal and run the following command to install it.

sudo apt-get install slurm

Once the installation is completed, you will be able to monitor your network traffic on the command line using this utility. In the terminal run the commands in the following format.

slurm –i [Interface Name]

where Interface Name should be replaced with the exact name of the interface on which you are going to apply the monitoring. For instance, I monitored the network traffic on my system’s eth0 interface by running the following command:

slurm –i eth0

Here is the screenshot showing the output of this command :

This utility will prove to be really helpful if you are working on the command line, another alternate utility is Tcpdump. Enjoy!
