    There was a good SNMP thread with links and directions but I can't recall it right now. Post again if a search doesn't find it and I'll try to search.

    that article is based on (and thus credits) said thread. its comments discuss possible use and storage of collected bandwidth data.

    In fact it might not be what i want. I share my internet connection through tomato and as the laws are getting hard i have to log for 12 months all the traffic/website just like qos-detailed.asp do. Any chance to do that ?

    That would be a metric *TON* of data. My recommendation would be not to share your connection if that is a requirement, because you will have a very hard time finding any SoHo router capable of doing such a thing with such slow CPUs (not to mention you're talking about hundreds of megabytes of uncompressed logs daily, which you will need to have an automated solution to compress, rotate, and render immutable for legal reasons).

    If this is something you REALLY want to do, I'd recommend outsourcing to a professional company and get some enterprise gear (and legal backing).

    Just FYI

    Just FYI, this logging is a requirement in all european countries. The law was set forth by the european parliament and as such it's mandatory for the member-countries of the EU to make this federal law. In Germany they designed the law in a way that small ISPs (like you) are not required to log, and there are several plaints to be decided by our Consitutional Court on that issue anyway.

    Do you know if it's the same for France ? I don't think so but i can't find the description of the law on French gouv website..

    I don't know the details but I believe the French implementation of this European directive is the "Décret no 2006-358 du 24 mars 2006 relatif à la conservation des données des communications électroniques". I found it here
    I read the whole text did not find passages that exclude smaller ISPs like you. On the other hand, I did not check all cross-references and French is not my first language anyway. For those wondering: it's German.

    Hi Toastman - I was considering doing the same here so I was wondering about one thing.

    Do we now have the ability to monitoring abilities equivalent to Networx? It has some nice quick ways to split and graph data usage data.

    Or can the Networx related monitoring become a Bonus/ Add-on besides Tomato USB's monitoring capabilities.

    Apparently, someone got it work here - Not sure if that has some flaws.,13178,13178,quote=1
