    I have to move out my openvpn cert, need more nvram space.
    Where is best place to put them ? /mnt on USB-memory or /jffs or other place ?

    I put a lot of my router custom configuration on the USB device. I have a 4 Gig one that is working great. For logging I do to a CIFS mount since I don't want to wear out the flash memory in the USB device.

    What is the benefit to use cfis so you don't burn out usb-memory?
    Where do you put your c-stas, r-stats and log then? I haven't used cfis yet.

    I use cifs mount points for logging. USB thumb drive have a finite write lifespan which varies by manufacturer. Personally I haven't "burnt" one out yet but I expect one day I will.

    If you have a server or workstation that is always up and running and say running windows you can create a share on that device and then mount it via CIFS in Tomato. I just happen to have a Windows Home Server and setup a Tomato share on it and used the CIFS configuration to mount the share. Using the custom path or CIFS path in the stats configuration will have them written to this mount point.

    Thank you RonV
    I don't have any computer on 24/7 and can't use cfis.
    Then alternativ is to use /mnt on usb-memory and not /jffs on router.
    I'm using c-r-stat and logs on usb with save every 24hour
    It's easyier to replace one usb memory.
