Best bandwidth monitoring package for me?



  • I'm running a small home network and I'm now using pfSense (1.2.3, for now) with a decent system (Supermicro, Dual-Atom 1.6 GHz, 2 GB RAM) and I'd like to have some kind of traffic/bandwidth monitoring.

    I'd like to see the current bandwidth per ip address along with a list of connections currently open.  I don't need anything too advanced but something basic that will provide me with that much information.  The main purpose would be to see if certain devices are hogging my bandwidth for unknown reasons so that I can investigate.

    Historical information isn't too important and would be useful but I'd probably look at it and I'd be worried about it slowing down the router, etc.

    What's a good monitoring package for me?

    BandwidthD is probably good enough for what you want, that will get you bandwidth by IP.

    As for open connections, that's already there under Diagnostics > States, and a better view by the "States Summary" package I wrote.
