Best place to store Bandwith Monitoring?

    Might be a stupid question, but I just flashed my WRT54G v4 yesterday to Tomato and I'm really amazed by this firmware. I was using Sveasoft Talisman 1.2 before, and what I really liked about Tomato is its bandwith monitoring ability.

    My question is where is the best place to store its activity?

    I've already configured to store in a CFS1 that points to a shared folder on my computer, but I really would prefer that this information would only stay in my router. I created a JFFS2 partition that had about 700 kb to store this, but when I tryed to set up to use it, Tomato told me that frequent write to nvram was not recommended.

    What would you guys do? Wich is the best option? Maybe consider a SD Card mod? Thanks a lot!

    I know you already said that you don't want to use the CIFS share, but I really like using the share because I don't have to worry about losing my data, and it is so easy. I also haven't had any problems with this method either.

    The cifs method works quite well, if a router reset is required (or even a reboot), you won't loose your history, or current data.

    I have been using this for sometime now without any trouble.
