Add average over time drop down box on Traffic Graph! $20.000



  • I would like to be able to adjust the traffic graph to average the throughput over x number of seconds. As you can see all I get is a bad saw tooth pattern. The traffic graph is displayed on a monitor 24/7 so it would be nice to smooth it out some! Bounty: $20USD

    It would also be nice to be able to display this exact traffic screen on my own web page (webserver runs on the same network as pfsense) for my public viewers to see (possibly with the option of partial masking of the public ip addresses). Bounty: ???USD

  • Where you want things averaged out, use the RRD graphs instead. The traffic graph is intended for real time throughput. Averaging out and feeding values to SVG is a massive undertaking that's not really worth the effort IMO, what's RRD missing that this would get you?

    The RDD graphs don't show me which internal computers are connected to which external sites and who's hogging the bandwidth. I love the real time nature of the traffic graph.

    I just figured right now it must average the data anyway, over the four seconds it takes to update the SVG graph (so was proposing to just have an option to extend it), is that not the case? It just takes a current bandwidth reading every four seconds? yikes :(

  • Oh, for that you'll want ntopng or bandwidthd or similar options along those lines. https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/How_can_I_monitor_bandwidth_usage

    Wow, ntopng is pretty freaky!! I've got it running now, I'll see how I like it. Thanks for the recommendation.

  • Ok, I got ntopng set up like how I want, but after a while it freezes up/stops responding. If I click "flow" again it just says "no data", when I click refresh it asks me to log in with the admin/admin again :(

    I looked through the settings, didn't see any timeouts :(

    Any advice?

  • Please start a new thread under the packages board with info, much better chance of that being seen.
