No long term bandwidth stats

    Hi,

    I upgraded a WRT54GL deom DD-WRT .23 to the latest tomato. Everything is working well, except that I am not getting daily, weekly, monthly bandwidth data.

    I reset the date to no avail. Has anyone seen this issue before?

    I am saving to RAM right now.

    change to nvram and you'll be fine.

    I use cifs but USB is another good alternative if available.

    Just made the change, so I'll find out tomorrow.

    My other Tomato based router was upgraded from the Linksys firmware, and it was saving its stats to RAM just fine. It's now on CIFS as well.

    Thanks,
    Gerald

    If you save in RAM you'll lose all the stats every time you reboot.
    I do use cifs as I have a NAS on the same LAN.

    Regards

    That didn't work. I'm still not getting daily/monthly data. Any other ideas?

    Is the stat file/dir writable?

    Try to create a new stat file (see administration/bandwidth tab for reference)

    I doubled checked that the file was created when I moved to CIFS, and it was, sO I know I have write access.

    The stats file has a timestamp of today, so it's been written to. The file size is only 1K though.

    What have you set under administration/bandwidth/save frequency ?

    I just set it to Every hour from every 24 hours last night. Still no daily data.

    My firewall stats file is still 1K in size, but has a time stamp from 6:17 this morning, which looks right to me.

    This is your main gateway router with an active connection to a DSL/cable modem (i.e. not 3G) via the WAN port, yes? If those conditions aren't met, the bandwidth stats will not be collected.

    Yup. The 'Internet' port is hooked up to a cable modem, and one of the internal ports go to a switch.
