    /mwg-core -S connections


      I use this command to display the open Office365 connections. 3 columns I don't understand:"Trxn Index","Status" and "In use".

      As far as I can see, only the values 3 and 26 occur with status. "In Use!" is always 0, the index value can be between 1 and 3.

      Where can I find a suitable explanation?

          Hi Frank,


          You dealing with O365 too? Are you just looking for the overall number of established TCP connections on the box? If so you can use the command below and look for the line "connections established" under TCP (see below). It appears that it's what the Dashboard uses for the graph labeled "Proxy Connections (in/out) shown at the bottom of this post.


          If you don't mind my asking how many O365 users are you dealing with? I'm looking for another McAfee customer who is looking at rolling this beast out using MWG as the proxy solution. Any help would be appreciated.

            With the command "mwg-core -S connections" I can not only see how many connections are open, but also how long they have been in use and what amount of data flows over each individual connection. Unfortunately, the 3 columns listed above in the first post do not open up to me.

            Unfortunately, you can't see a connection in the proxylog until it is closed. In my opinion it would be useful if there is a possibility to manually terminate an existing connection in the Gui.....

              Not familiar with this command. Do you just run it from the CLI? Do you have to be in a particular directory?




              • 4. Re: /mwg-core -S connections



                and yes you have to run this from CLI.

                  Am I missing something? This is what I get...


                  [root@A46DINTW10 /]# cd /opt/mwg/bin

                  [root@A46DINTW10 bin]# pwd


                  [root@A46DINTW10 bin]# mwg-core -S connections

                  -bash: mwg-core: command not found

                  • 6. Re: /mwg-core -S connections

                    /opt/mwg/bin/mwg-core -S connections


                    cd /opt/mwg/bin

                    ./mwg-core -S connections


                    or you have to add /opt/mwg/bin to your path
