Librenms Graph values for network device interface Errors and Discards


I have an issue with graph discard and error values displayed as bit count instead of raw number of packets. Is there a way to change these graph error/discard values to just the number of packets exactly like how the Interface Packets graphs show their data?

The default bit count output is not very useful with variable packet size traffic in large networks. It’s also making it difficult to setup alert triggers to catch port errors/discard. Below are device and LibreNMS graph outputs for the same device/port.

any help on this would be greatly appreciated.


Raw device interface output:

sh int po100 | i ‘output packets|discard’

0 input with dribble  0 input discard
6073980053936 output packets  5719695065820808 bytes
0 lost carrier  0 no carrier  0 babble  35844865550 output discard

sh int po100 | i ‘input rate|output rate’

30 seconds input rate 56566206152 bits/sec, 8305577 packets/sec
30 seconds output rate 52357605656 bits/sec, 6959981 packets/sec
input rate 56.57 Gbps, 8.31 Mpps; output rate 52.36 Gbps, 6.96 Mpps
