Bandwidth and IP Stats Not Even Close

    So I have the latest Shibby release for my E2000, everything works smoothly but I notice the bandwidth and IP related stats are completely erroneous. They show the devices on the network, RX and TX just fine. The problem is that they show traffic for devices that aren't currently on the network. For example I went out of town this weekend, but when I look at the bandwidth info for my laptop when I got home, it showed that this device, and other devices I had with me, had generated traffic on my network while I was away. All my devices are statically set via dhcp, so it's not some other device using the same IP while I was away. Any ideas why this would be happening? I also checked and the current date/time is correct, so it's not an issue of looking at the wrong date/time.

    Tomato devs are aware of it. RMerlin worked on it and basically fixed most of the issues. His fixes were ported to Toastman, can't remember to Victek, but not Shibby's yet.

    If you really want to know the issues/how it was fixed go to http://forums.smallnetbuilder.com/forumdisplay.php?f=42

    Too tired to go dig through which forum thread he posted his debugging/fixes in.

    Rmerlin has indeed been working on it and most of the fixes have migrated to at least some versions of tomato. I don't think shibby has yet included them, however if you look at git branch 'KDB-RT-N-sh' you'll find I've ported the fixes to a recent clone of shibby's branch. It's up to Shibby if he includes them, or tweaks them even further :)

    i have all patches in my local repo and i`m testing at the moment. In v110 all patches will be applied.

    Long story short: there were numerous issues with the IPTraffic implementation that were recently fixed.

    1) Issue if you went over 2 GB (or was it 4 GB?) of traffic due to the use of 32-bit vars in numerous places
    2) Issue if bandwidth report updates were sent too quickly to the router, causing some traffic to get counted twice

    The Tomato devs have all the patches, so it's probably just a matter of time for them to test them, and make new releases incorporating the fixes.

    RMerlin - thank you for your work... IPtraffic is now better and works great in latest Victek with your changes
