    Hi @ all,

    as title say its (is it? :) time for a new version which tracks yearly statistics. One of the first threads (maybe THE first) here about tomato is nearly one year ago ! Hope Jon will react soon about this :biggrin:

    I think Jon was thinking people might manually archive the logs annually. Good idea though!

    i'd be more interested in a per-ip/mac statistic.

    I agree, but i dont know much people who do jobs manually anymore !

    This should be no wish thread. THIS is just fact !

    I have an alternative view in this 'add more things' to the Tomato firmware.

    Rather than keep loading graphs, logs and such things into the router, why don't we ask, as an option, for a more comprehensive output log file that gets dumped to a CIFS or JFFS2 client. This way, if you want more info then you can run a more detailed analysis using your more powerful desktop computer. If you do not want this kind of information then you do not ask for it. Either way, you keep the router fast and flexible rather than bog it down by adding more and more statistics and graphs.

    Granted, this means that someone is going to have to write the program, or the log file is going to have to be made so that the already existing programs out there can read it. Then we can do the per IP/MAC, yearly stats, etc that a few of us would like to see.

    We all went to Tomato for the speed, flexibility, neat graphs, or whatever. If we keep asking for things and Jon keeps adding them by popular demand we are going to to wind up with DD-WRT mark II. Don't get me wrong, DD-WRT is a good firmware, but, IMHO, it has too many "bells & whistles" in it for a simple router. Right now, we have good basic tools for bandwidth monitoring and one TERRIFIC QOS setup. What else does a ROUTER really need?

    With that said, the ability to CONTROL bandwidth on a per IP/MAC would be nice using a SIMPLE internal GUI would be nice. By simple, I mean something like a slider or other visual reference.

    i have email'ed Jon about this. Here is his answer:

    Sorry to disappoint, I have nothing planned... I haven't had much time to
    work on it lately. I've been doing minor things, but nothing that would be
