Network statistic feature

  • Good day.

    I want to install pfsense in my office.
    We have a small LAN with about 20 computers, and pfsense will work as a DHCP-server and router.

    I know using pfSense I can view overall network statistic.

    Is it possible to view online per-ip network statistics? I want to trace network usage online and watch who among 20 users is eating traffic.

    Isnt it difficult using DHCP and not fixed IP's???

    pfSense handles DHCP leases very well . . . perfect for this.

    As for the individual IP stats you could check out the BandwidthD package.  It works fairly well for me but it can only work on one interface currently.  I would love to see it work on more than one interface.

    I'm sure there are some other packages that could do this also but I haven't had time to play with them yet.

  • What's about ntop? I've heard there is a package for pfSense? Is it still working?
