    I use Tomato 1.04 and im very happy with... I use static IPs and i would like to see how much traffic was generated by every computer/IP in my LAN... Is this possible? If its not possible in this version maybe can be implemented in future versions of firmware... I think it would be very interesting feature for many users..

    Well it's mostly there...
    1. Use syslog and Wallwatcher on a PC for your useage
    2. Install SNMP on Tomato and an snmp logger on a pc will get you bandwidth data per ip/mac/...

    How to do that? Im not advanced user... And do i need to have PC turned on all the time to collect data? thnx.. :)

    i don't think snmp will let you log how much an IP(/mac) uses up. it'll work with the four different ethernet ports though, as well as the wireless device. also, this requires another computer that logs the traffic 24/7.

    a solution that is integrated within the tomato-firmware, perhaps very similar to or combined with the bandwidth-logging that is present already would be quite nice, and as i imagine, not too complicated.

    Hi LiOn,

    If you want to log 24/7 you would need the PC on and running.

    I suggest going the easy one first and give WallWatcher a try.

    On your Tomato http to
    Check "Log to Remote System"
    And add your PC's IP and port 514

    Start Wallwatcher and voila! This won't give you "bandwidth" per se but you will see all the connections made by each IP.

    You can get bandwidth using SNMP but installation and setup are a little more involved.
