Sarg and Light squid do not see VPN and TOR



  • Yesterday I decided to do some tests with Traffic monitoring and ran a tor browser and a vpn all day on a couple of computers and at the end of the day Sarg reports and Light Squid did not show traffic from the VPN or Tor browser not even an IP Address but it showed everything else that used bandwidth. What did I configure wrong and what would be the best way to see the traffic flow from an anonymous browser. Dave



  • Sarg and Lightsquid report on the usage of the Squid web proxy.  That's all.  If you want to monitor overall bandwidth then use bandwidthd, ntopng or darkstat.



  • I am now also using spideroak one for backing up to the cloud it is encrypted and the the traffic graph and ntopng show it using bandwidth ntopng also shows the ip address of spideroak but light squid or sarg show it in the logs. How can something upload 50 gigabytes and it not show up in any logs ?



  • https traffic is not picked up / logged by squid unless you're doing man in the middle / certs.



  • @JuantonJohn:

    https traffic is not picked up / logged by squid unless you're doing man in the middle / certs.

    but what if we for example don't need to analyze https traff qualitatively - only quantitatively, so there is no need to decipher it? then why the F squid can't just count bytes he redirects from client to web server?

    is there any patches for squid to resolve this?
    is it possible at all?

    anyone?

    Squid only logs what's sent to it. ntopng does pick up what you want, but it has poor historical data management.
