    I am getting the folowing error when I select Bandwidth, daily, weekly and monthly.
    "The rstats program is not responding or is busy. Try reloading after a few seconds."
    This started after the last power out and on. It has been giving this error all day. I tried a reboot several times, no go.
    Any suggestions?

    Do you save the bandwidth logs onto a cifs share?

    Yes I do, but I have to admit that I can't find the file. It's as though it wasn't been written. The router was up for 35 days straight and working great so I assumed it was saving the files. Perhaps the rstat program is hung trying the find the file. I'll stop the CIFS as see what happens.

    Yup, that was it.
    Thanks for the clue!!!
    Now I have to fix the UNC file location so it works, it was mounting so I thought it was OK.
    I set it up as per the forum; "\\computer IP\Tomato" where the Tomato file was in the new user I set up as Tomato with a user name and password so I will play with that to try and get it to work.
    Thanks again.

    OK, now I'm at wits end.
    CIFS UNC "\\computer IP\Tomato" mounts but I can't find any files written. If I try to give it a path to a file in the Tomato user such as "\\computer IP\C:\documents and settings\Tomato" it will not mount.
    What next?
    Thanks Mikester

    "\\computer IP\Tomato" would be correct. Make sure that you have the correct user and permissions. Are you viewing the files from windows? Make sure that your filemanager has "view system and hidden files" enabled.

    I have it working now, thanks. I followed the advise given at this forum to manually make a start file.

    Soljia, I've spent the last few hours trying to figure out the same problem you are having. A pack of smokes and a break away from the computer later I finally got an idea of something to try, and it f'ing worked!

    This is what I did:

    Set [Save History Location] to RAM (Temporary) then click save at the very bottom

    Go down to [Backup] and manually download (save) the tomato_rstats file to the Share Folder, \Router ,in your case.

    Now go back to [Save History Location], and select CIFS 1, then click save at the very bottom.

    Now you should be able to view the Bandwidth and its subcategories without getting the error, and it should be saving the stats at the frequency you've selected.

    It seems you need a tomato_rstats**.gz in the share folder to start off with , and it does not create one via the CIFS route, so you have to download it manually.

    I imagine this is a problem alot of us have ran into, since this step isn't stated in any documentation (that I could find) for Tomato. Or maybe I'm a n00b..lol

    Hope this helps
