one–liner of the day: quick–and–dirty network summary

If you’ve got a solaris box with a load of zones on, you might sometimes have an issue whereby you can see that the box is pushing a lot of traffic over the network, but you’re unsure which zone(s) are responsible. Here’s a super-hacky way to get an overview:

 snoop -c 1000 | awk '{print $1}' | sort | uniq -c | sort -n

basically, catch the first 1000 packets, find the source for each one (assuming most of your traffic is outbound; if it’s inbound then print $3), and then count the distinct hosts (i.e. your zone names) and list them.

If you have a slow nameserver you may want to add “-r” to the snoop command and then map IPs to names afterwards.
