PFS - Bandwidth Usage Logs



  • Hi All.

    Could be a silly question. but how would i enable Monthly Upload/Download Logs for usage.

    Currently, i have a "Current" log which means the moment i reboot for any reason it would reset. But i would love to take a look at a Breakdown every month for Upload n Download per Day and a total at the end of the Month as my ISP one shows a Massive gap of 9 days at 0 up & 0 down.

    Thanks guys!

    P.S Example can be provided on Req.

    Add the package Traffic Totals you can view the stats from there, also you could download the data as a csv and import it into a spreadsheet via the advanced settings.



  • Hi

    Thanks for the Response.

    Seems i didn't notice the "Traffic Totals" in the Package Manager, is this something "As Standard" and not a "Unofficial Addon"?

    Could you drop a Print Screen of its Location at all?

    Thanks ever so much for your help!

    It's an official package, what version of pfSense are you running ?

    Status_Traffic_Totals net 1.2_1 Traffic Totals page under the Status menu, which will give a total amount of traffic passed In/Out over the period of hours, days, and months. Uses vnStat for data collection.

    Package Dependencies:
      vnstat-1.15



  • Hi

    Thanks for the Help, any reason why its showing only Today Traffic and not previous? i haven't enabled anything to see Today Traffic so unsure why it would only start logging if you click on it.

    Does this mean its not persistent or you need to have this TAB Open for a full month for this to Actually Persist Log?

    Thanks

    Example: Yesterday shows and every other day shows 0kb Usage across ALL & Any Interface.

    Think it only saves the data since the first install of the package, I have the previous months data and an 18hr uptime after doing a reboot.

  • Hi

    Well, this was installed 2 months ago, and a major update to 2.3.4 was done a week ago, so i still should be seeing at least a weeks worth, but seems to be it wasn't actively monitoring the traffic till i looked at the Stats Page.

    So im wondering whether this will stick in the background or need some settings change elsewhere.

    Thanks



  • I have installed Status_Traffic_Totals too, many moths ago, but it always seems to not be collecting data until I go look at it. I've re-installed it, but every time I go back and check it, it's all zeros.
