Is there a reliable way to measure packetbeat capture loss?


(Aadhithya Kannan) #1

We are looking for a reliable way to measure Packetbeat capture loss.

AF_Packet is enabled and the network sees peak traffic of around 700 mbps. I tried looking for other posters' solutions to this and the few that I could find were not suitable for our conditions. For example, some suggestions included sending simulated data through Packetbeat and then analyzing how much of that data was retained, but we must capture live so this is not an ideal solution for us. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to collect packet loss statistics?

These are the af_packet settings.

packetbeat.interfaces.device: ens15f1
packetbeat.interfaces.type: af_packet
packetbeat.interfaces.buffer_size_mb: 100
packetbeat.interfaces.ignore_outgoing: true

Thanks in advance.
