2.2. Information Administrative Window

2.2.1. Status

By selecting the Information AW you are presented with a VERY thorough list of information regarding the current status of your IPCop server. The first subsection (status) displays the following in top-down order:

  • Services - Displays which services are currently running.

  • Memory - Displays the memory/swapfile usage on your IPCop server.

  • Disk Usage - Displays the total/used amount of Harddrive space on your IPCop server.

  • Uptime and Users - Displays the output of the uptime command and information on users currently logged in on the IPCop server.

  • Interfaces - This section displays information on ALL your network devices. This includes PPP, IPSec, Loopback etc.

  • Loaded Modules - This displays all modules currently loaded and in use by the kernel.

  • Kernel Version - This displays information on the IPCop Kernel itself.

2.2.2. Traffic Graphs

This page gives a graphic depiction of the traffic in and out of the IPCop box. The first section, Network traffic graphs: shows the name of the machine, which is labeled as Host. The time the graph was created. The start and end time for the graph and the resolution of the graph in time vs. pixels.

The second section shows a graph for all incoming traffic (i.e. traffic from the outside through the red interface) and a graph for all outgoing traffic (the traffic from the IPCop through the RED interface and out to the outside world.)

If you are connected to the Internet via a cable modem or other Ethernet connection, graphs for the RED interface will appear, also.

2.2.3. Proxy Graphs

This page shows traffic through the proxy service of the IPCop box. The first section, Proxy access graphs: gives the date and time the graph was created, the lines analyzed, the duration of the analysis, the speed (lines per second), the start and end date and time of the graph, and the domain (overall length of the graph in time).

This information is useful in seeing whether the proxy is the correct size for the load being experienced.

2.2.4. Connections

Masq Entries: shows the IP masquerading entries.

Netstat TCP Entries: shows the active TCP connections.
