Better Bandwidth Graphs



  • I upgraded to pfSense from a Broadcom router that runs Tomato, and the only feature I miss alot is the Real-time, Last 24-hours, Daily, Weekly, & Monthly Stats.

    Is it possibly to scale RRD Graph to those values?

    We have monthly caps & Tomato made such monitoring much easier.  Also having so many graphs in one page makes my embedded board slow during rendering.

    Does the BandwidthD package run on the embedded version?

    thanx..



  • Hello, I recently replaced my tomato firmware with pfsense… I am still new but maybe these can help with your graphing desires =]

  • Since we're both former Tomato users (I still use it as a wireless 5 port switch), which of the those did you choose or know which replicates most of Tomato's Bandwidth stats?

    From my understanding, they require full installs, I'm not using a microdrive or a hdd, but a CF card and the newest 1.2.3 rc2 nanobsd requires the packages to be re-written to be fully compatible.  I tried an early 1.2.3 rc2 for embedded had issues and I had to drop back to 1.2.2.

    I'm on an Alix 2d3 board, can't stand using an old noisy pc for pfSense.  :-)
