V2.0: Measure traffic through individual gateway ?



  • Is it possible to gather statistics or show the current traffic / bandwidth usage of an individual gateway (not interface) ?
    My setup is using four gateways connected to a single pfSense WAN interface in a load balancing (routing through gateway group) setup. NAT is disabled.

    There is no way to measure it that I'm aware of.

    Unless something can graph by MAC address (I seem to recall ntop doing that, but it may not do it for gateways) it wouldn't be possible for anything to accurately track what got sent via a specific gateway, since it isn't the source or destination IP, but an intermediate router.



  • On 1.2.3 you could install the "rate" package.
    It will display current traffic per IP on an interface (under Status –> Traffic Graph".
    But this is only for "current" speed and not to create long term statistics.

    That is on the 2.0 traffic graph out of the box, but it wouldn't count traffic through a specific gateway, but for the whole interface by IP (which can be done a variety of ways)

    He has WAN with four gateway IPs in the WAN subnet, and he wants to graph the traffic for each of those gateways individually.

    mark_orion - Do you have access to those boxes that are the individual gateways? Can they be monitored via snmp?
