This a module for Magic Mirror².
Queries a network device via SNMP and displays the transfer rates for a single interface.



Clone this repository in your modules folder, and install dependencies:

cd /path/to/magicmirror/modules
git clone
cd MMM-SnmpIntSpeed
npm install


Edit config.js located in the /config directory of MagicMirror root. Add the module to your modules array in the MagicMirror configuration file.

  module: "MMM-SnmpIntSpeed",
  position: "top_left",
  config: {
    gaugeType: 'minimal',
    interval: 5,
    community: 'public',
    version: 2,
    host: "localhost",
    index: 1

Here is the documentation of options for the modules configuration:

Styling using CSS is currently a work in progress and currently is mainly used to facilitate changing the size of the gauges. The example below will change the gauges size from the 150x100 default size to 300x200 pixels in size.

#downloadSpeedGauge, #uploadSpeedGauge{
  width:300px; height:200px;

Selecting the interface

With the main MagicMirror module, there is also an independent application that can be used to find the index of the interface to pool.
The application can be run without any arguments and in this case will read MagicMirror config.js look for the MMM-SnmpIntSpeed configuration and use it to pool the device, this is useful to verify that this module is properly configured in MagicMirror.

node GetInterfaces.js

Depending on the device being pooled it will output something like below, which is from a PfSense Firewall.

  '1': { ifDescr: 'em0', ifName: 'em0', ifAlias: 'Outside' },
  '2': { ifDescr: 'em1', ifName: 'em1', ifAlias: 'Inside' },
  '3': { ifDescr: 'enc0', ifName: 'enc0', ifAlias: '' },
  '4': { ifDescr: 'lo0', ifName: 'lo0', ifAlias: '' },
  '5': { ifDescr: 'pflog0', ifName: 'pflog0', ifAlias: '' },
  '6': { ifDescr: 'pfsync0', ifName: 'pfsync0', ifAlias: '' }

If the module wasn't yet configured, then you will need to pass the correct SNMP version, community and IP or hostname of the device.

node GetInterfaces.js --version 2 --community public --host
