Network Traffic by Integration

I see this general question has been asked many (many) times, but I don’t see a direct answer.

Is there a straightforward way (i.e., an integration or add-on) that will show how much network traffic each integration is using?

My HA machine is generating between 6 and 7gb of traffic every day, and I’d sure like to know why.

Thank you.

Wow, great numbers, interesting to learn more.

As of know, there is no data which we are having on integration level cpu/memory/network utilization.

How did you get this data? From router or from Unifi console?

Cant help with your question but the two main culprits are usually:

  • speedtest
  • video camera streams in dashboards

Disabled speedtests quite a while ago – it was indeed using lots of data.

In my troubleshooting attempts, I disabled the Blueiris integration and that helped.

I still have go2rtc add-on running with a few streams. Will disable and check.

Thank you Tom!

I used the System Monitor platform and then created Utility Meter Helpers to total (or reset) the data on an hourly and daily basis.

Here’s the yaml:

  - platform: systemmonitor
      - type: processor_use
      - type: disk_use_percent
        arg: "/"
      - type: disk_free
        arg: "/"
      - type: memory_use_percent
      - type: network_in
        arg: eno1
      - type: throughput_network_in
        arg: eno1
      - type: network_out
        arg: eno1
      - type: throughput_network_out
        arg: eno1
      - type: processor_temperature
      - type: last_boot

I am happy to help and share, but I’d bet that I am in the bottom 1% of knowledgeable here, so just about anyone else could do a better job.

One 2K camera stream can generate this amount of traffic in one hour…

Partial solution here. Any help to a complete solution will be appreciated.
