Help with /proc/net/dev

I got the same issue. I think its because grsec is restricting proc access. What i would like to know is with what settings grsec was compiled and if OVH specified a special GID that allows proc access in their build.

I'm running a stock OVH install of CentOS and BWM works fine and /proc/net/dev exists and updates.

Not sure if vnstat using proc/net but you could try it? you can get the live view with 'vnstat -l'

i am trying to install bandwidth monitoring tools such as cbm, bwm etc that rely on the /proc/net/dev file but that it always shows up as no such directory or file..

even /proc/net shows up as no such file or directory..

Linux version (gcc version 4.3.2 (Debian 4.3.2-1.1) )

when i type ls -ald /proc/net

i get this -> lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 2009-12-24 05:42 /proc/net -> self/net

when i type ls -ald /proc/self/net

dr-xr-xr-x 2 djx root 0 2009-12-24 05:43 /proc/self/net
