H-Sphere versions: 2.5.0 Patch 1
In H-Sphere 2.5.0 (Final) release, we mistakenly assumed that a network switch counts traffic going
from a server through a switch port as outgoing. Instead, the switch treats this traffic as incoming
for the port, whereas the traffic from the port to the server, as outgoing.
We have fixed MRTG inverse in/out traffic calculation problem by including a "-" sign at the
beginning of the Target configuration line (in MRTG config files).
To apply a fix, re-create Network Switch Interfaces for each
dedicated server in use. For this:
- Delete already existing interface(s): go to Dedicated Servers->Manage Servers
menu of your Control Panel. Choose the server, and click on the Trash icon(s) in the
Network Switch Interface field.
- Create new Network Switch Interface(s) with the same parameters as the deleted one(s) had.
For dedicated servers not in use, correct MRTG configs will be created as soon as they are
taken by end users.
Note: in case you do need the reverse in/out traffic, add the following line to the
REVERSE_DEDICATED_SERVER_TRAFFIC = TRUE
