Any ideas?

Did you read, maybe calculation is not proper:

You can check actual output traffic using Rest API:


Or web interface:

System - Nodes - Metrics - org.graylog2.traffic.output

please send a screenshot of “System > Overview” that shows clearly the complete traffic graph.

Hi @jan

Hi @shoothub

for each graylog node:




Hi @jan

Should be working with this amount, right?

he @afmin

the window is 30 days and you are allowed 5 time above 5GB. From the graph it is hard to tell where the 14th is … but I guess it has reached 5 on a point … You need to wait until you do not have 5 spikes in that window.

Hi @jan

Is there a command to check / monitor the calculated traffic with is responsible for the spikes?

in 3.2 we have implement the meta field gl2_message_size that allows you do investigate in that.

Before you need to look from the message count and believe that the source send most messages is the root of that problem.

He @jan

So there is not option to verify it with the 3.1 version or get to know more about the log from the graylog server itself?

he @afmin

no I can think off …
