    I want to use bandwidth data after reboot or shutdown. So which one should I save them to, RAM, NVRAM, JFFS2, CFFS1,CFFS2 or custom path?

    Thanks in advance.

    Easiest, NVRAM, once every week... Flash has limited # of rewrites.

    I use CIFS and save it every hour. I have Comcast and I have been close to the 200GB limit a few times and it is nice to have proof that I have not gone over. At least with it saving once an hour I won't lose too much data if something dies.

    I believe Con-Cast has changed some of their obscure tactics. They receive too much bad press, and are now "shaping" traffic rather than booting people from their net. I know some people who use "Comcast" for security video or constant realtime time chatting/video conferencing, they easily surpass 200GB/month.

    Correct me if I am mistaken but NVRAM and Flash memory are one and the same physical memory chip. JFFS2 is just the Journaling Flash File System implemented in Non-Volatile RAM.

    CIFS1 and CIFS2 are the better permanent storage alternatives. See the wiki for further help.
