Monitor Client Traffic usage

  • Is there any way to monitor client traffic usage ?
    I have the client IP address and MAC address.

  • I have a similar question. I'd like to be able to monitor all incoming traffic, what's going where etc - would be great if logs could be in a tabular format with sort on column. Can pfSense do that?

  • Look at the BandwidthD package.

  • The packages bandwidthd and/or ntopng may do what you need.  Search the forum for more info.  Note that bandwidthd packaged for pfSense only knows about IPv4 traffic, so if you need to see IPv6 traffic then look at ntopng.  ntopng is more capable and modern, but bandwidthd is simple and quite useful.
