comment Monitor network traffic volume over interface
Thanks - this in addition to the comment by @user239558 was just right. I'm accepting your answer since you were the first to mention ifconfig.

comment Set default numa policy to “interleave” system wide
Let's say mostly 2-socket, but does it matter?

Let's say RHEL and x86 commodity servers (e.g., Dell poweredge stuff).

@ewwhite We are largely using RHEL, although I'm especially interested on options available on all modern Linux distros.

comment Set default numa policy to “interleave” system wide
At this point curiosity and the need to test different configurations. One of the favorite responses to any question on stackexchange sites seems to be "why would you want to even do that?!". Well one other common response is "You need to test that (configuration, idea, optmization, etc)". So to test things you need to configure them in different ways...

comment Set default numa policy to “interleave” system wide
Based on my limited understanding of numad, it doesn't seem like it can do what I want. It mostly moves memory around after the fact, trying to consolidate working sets that have become spread across nodes - but it doesn't seem like affects the initial allocation node. So it can only help me "de-interleave" but never increase the interleaving.

comment Set default numa policy to “interleave” system wide
Basically I have a situation where it may be difficult to use numactrl explicitly to launch the process, so I was curious if there was a way to set the fault. The various policies, such as interleave do seem to exist (the kernel uses interleave at startup, for example) so it seemed that there would be some way to set the default.

Looks great, unfortunately I am not able to install any new tools on these locked down boxes.

D'oh, search fail (and I tried). To be fair, I think it's a serverfault question, not a SO one :)
