    Perhaps I am doing something wrong, if someone would please enlighten me, feel free to do so.

    I've looked left and right, and the Tomato Firmware is what came closer to what I am seeking.. however, I still can't get what I'm seeking..

    If someone knows where/how I might get the following, please reply!

    All I want, is *simple* logging of this type:


    MAC - Download - Upload
    MAC - Download - Upload

    00:00:00:00:00:A0 - 456.7 MB - 123.4 MB
    11:11:11:11:11:11 - 333.3 MB - 111.4 MB
    12:34:56:78:9A:BC - 12.3 MB - 34.1 MB
    00:00:00:00:00:A0 - 543.1 MB - 32.4 MB
    11:11:11:11:11:11 - 43.6 MB - 12.1 MB
    12:34:56:78:9A:BC - 235.1 MB - 31.1 MB
    ... And so on.

    Any ideas?

    First thing that pops up in my mind is IPFM.
    IP Flow Meter (IPFM) is a bandwidth analysis tool, that measures how much bandwidth specified hosts use on their Internet link.

    It gives an output like this (I used it until the WRT54 became my firewall / router in June 2006):

    [IP-based, not MAC]

    # cat total-May-2006 
    Monthly Bandwith Usage for May 2006
    Hosts                   In        Out     Total
    -----------------------------------------------         52.31G      2.38G    54.69G         2.00G    171.53M     2.18G        592.00M      1.39G     1.98G        4.44M      0.00B     4.44M         1.03M    141.77K     1.18M

    # end of dump 2006/06/02 10:00:00
    When you google for it, you'll get some hits about someone who is trying to get this working for OpenWRT - you need some more libaries like libpcap to get it running, but so far this is not included in Tomato as of yet...
    Maybe Jon will read this and considers it, heh-heh!
