Traffic monitoring with WRT54G based on dd-WRT frimware

Discussion in 'Networking Issues' started by bernhardfriess, Dec 10, 2005.

  1. Hi Folks,

    I'd like to have a traffic monitoring wich provides me with the information about which computer on the LAN/WLAN has caused which part of the WAN-traffic of the WRT54G.

    I played around with the "rflow collector". It seems to do the job quite well. The only thing is, it runs on MS-OS. My computer running MS-OS doesn't run 24x7 but my Linux based webserver does. Is there a similar tool like "rflow collector" running on Linux?

    I also tested ntop which collects a huge amount of data. The problem is, that ntop seems not to save the traffic data for a computer, when the computer is disconnected from the network e.g. switched off.

    I've also installed WRTbwlog on my WRT54G. This is a nice tool however I didn't figure out, how I can obtain the information of which computer has caused which portion of the WAN traffic.

    Has there anybody an idea for a solution?

    I'm looking forward for any reply and say thanks in advance.

    Best regards
