Bandwidth Statistics

To view your Intra-Ohio or I2 Net-Flow bandwidth stats, please visit


Access the Statseeker web page at



OARnet provides three levels of connectivity

  • IntraOhio bandwidth Network traffic that stays within the State of Ohio.
  • Internet (also called Internet1) General public connection.
  • Internet2 Non-profit, national network dedicated to research and education. OARnet is Ohio's access point to Internet2.

Two different services enable clients to view bandwidth and utilization statistics. On-line statistics are currently available to all academic and government members. To access them, you must have a user-id and password. Please contact the Service Desk at 1-800-627-6420 or if you need this information. (Only contacts listed in our database will be given the login information.)

Non-academic clients may contact the Service Desk at and request a stats report for a specific time period. 

Leased Line Statistics

Statseeker allows our leased line customers to track line utilization in many different ways. These statistics can help you with things such as:

  • Determining whether or not your current connection is capable of accommodating the amount of traffic on a given interface.
  • Seeing the periods of time and/or months when your interfaces handle the most traffic.
  • A glimpse of the number of errors a given interface takes in a year.

View utilization reports

  • Once you have logged in, you will be taken to the Standard Console of the Network Infrastructure Monitor.
  • Select a graph option.
    • To quickly see all interfaces without having to format graphs
    • Choose your device(s) (either the OARnet provided cpe device or the backbone router that connects you) from the device list (third column). Ctrl-Click allows you select multiple devices.
    • Click on Utilization, which is underneath the Interfaces section of the Reports List page (first column, third).
  • To view statistics for a specific port/s in detail
    • Select your device using the Device List and then select Utilization. If your device is not listed, contact the Service Desk at or 1-800-627-6420.
    • In this window, you will notice a Port List with all the ports on your device. Select the port you wish to view statistics for by clicking its name. The name will be in a format similar to 'ge-0/0/0.'
    • At the top-center of this window, you can choose the time period you wish to look at. This window also auto-refreshes your data every minute.

Generate a statistics report

  • Statseeker allows you to view your interface statistics in a variety of ways, not just utilization.
    • Top X Network under the Report List column will bring up report with an at-a-glance overview of information for the devices you've selected.
    • Top Utilization Graphs will bring up graphs for your busiest interfaces- the ones that might need the closest attention.
    • Utilization will bring up all utilization information for all ports on the devices selected. Transmit/Receive graphs can also be inspected by left-clicking the smaller graphs displayed on the utilization information page.
    • Bits Per Second contains utilization information, but displayed in terms of the number of actual bits being transmitted or received on each port.
    • Packets will display graphs for the number of packets per second along the port.
    • Errors displays error information for data and packets that have traversed each port.
    • Discards indicates the amount of data that has been discarded.

Save graphs

Save formatted graphs to a location on your computer by left-clicking on the 'PDF' icon in the top-left corner of any report page

Rate-limited interface

Rate limits are not reflected on the utilization formats. If you are viewing a rate-limited interface, keep in mind that you are limited to the maximum value for Utilization % (i.e. you have a DS3 (45Mbps) connection, but you are rate-limited to 22.5 Mbps. Therefore, a line that hits the 22.5 Mbps mark means that you are essentially using 100% of your allotted bandwidth. If you do not know whether or not your interface is rate-limited, you can email or call the support center (, 1-800-627-6420).
