SummaryIn cases where local traffic is not showing up in the real time monitor or in any monitoring graphs, it is likely that "Ignore Internal to Internal" traffic is enabled on the system.
OverviewWhen monitoring traffic in the Exinda, local traffic - traffic going between hosts on the LAN - might be vital to shape or prioritize, depending on the type of traffic that it is. For example, backup traffic might have a high priority at night but shouldn't be allowed to run during the day. However, on some systems, local traffic might not show up on any of the monitoring graphs, including the Real Time Monitor, even while the traffic is occurring. The Exinda has a setting to 'ignore internal to internal traffic', which will let any traffic from an internal host destined to another internal host - as defined by Exinda network objects, which can be checked by Configuration > Objects > Network - go through without being shaped or even monitored. This is the same behavior as setting a policy to the 'Ignore' setting, but for all IPs that belong to an internal network object.
To check and change this setting:
1. In the Management Console, go to System > Setup > Monitoring tab
2. Under "Monitoring Options", check the Ignore Internal-to-Internal option. If it is ticked, it is enabled, and traffic will be ignored. To change it, untick the check box.
3. Click Apply Changes, then Save
