    This would be my first question in the forum and I am still at the exploring stages of Tomato firmware. I recently installed Tomato v1.27 firmware on my router and have been very very happy with the features offered.

    There is this one feature which I am in need of and couldn't find it inbuilt that is Bandwidth Monitoring for all clients (static DHCP defined ones). Basically, I want to see the bandwidth statistics for each client on daily basis as well as weekly basis. After googling for a while, I found the tool IPT-Parse but I am having trouble configuring it. Below are the steps that I have followed:

    1. Enable CIFS1 on Tomato by pointing to share folder on my Windows Home Server
    2. Extracted files from folder "tomato_files" of IPT-Parse.7z to this shared folder
    3. I checked for permissions by running CHMOD like described in the help
    4. Entered following command under Administration->Scripts->Firewall
    /cifs1/ipt-parse 6
    5. Then under Administration->Scheduler, I enabled Custom 1, set the time to 9:30 (my server auto turns on at 9am) and entered following code:
    cd /cifs1
    ./ipt-parse 2 BANDWIDTH
    ./ipt-parse 4 today today BANDWIDTH flags=morehostinfo > dailybandwidthlive.html
    ./ipt-parse 4 today-7 today BANDWIDTH flags=morehostinfo > weeklybandwidthlive.html
    Initially for testing purposes I had set the time in Scheduler to "Every 5 Minutes" and the script did initally create the two files dailybandwidthlive.html and weeklybandwidthlive.html, but the files don't contain all IP addresses listed from static DHCP list. I have multiple active clients on network but the output files does not have them listed. I am not 100% sure but I have a feeling that the numbers in the two reports aren't updated at all. Everytime I refresh I see the same numbers but the timestamp is modified. Is my configuration/script wrong?

    Also, does the standard Tomato Bandwidth Monitoring need to be enabled for the functionality of IPT-Parse? Currently I have it disabled.

    I would really appreciate your response on this.

    Thanks and Regards,
