Internet Meter, local logging/metering options..
« on: February 19, 2010, 05:33:40 PM »
Hi,

Is there an option or posibility to stop the Simple Internet Meter from logging and metering local LAN traffic and only keep/store stats for the internet connection?

If one has IP cams on the local LAN there is a lot of traffic which I feel unnecessary to monitor and log.

Please advise... and congrats for such a cool proggy...

Thanks

I'm afraid there isn't...yet  :wink: If I have to I can add an option.

The daily logs dot take much space. It just keeps a grand total for the day. Hourly however I can see why you wouldn't want local as well. You can turn off hourly though.

Basically its not about space as much as it is about overhead. I rather eliminate this bit of overhead.
Say we have a huge log of local traffic, when we click on the Report page all that has to load especially if its been few months/year I rather have the option to eliminate that logging.
If you can add this option, would be absolutelly cool and wecome,  please consider it.;-)

Also, would it be possible in the future to support snmp for traffic loggin which would allow SNMP routers to report to Simple Internet Meter which would be great for people that have multiple PC's on the lan or non windows machines/devices etc.
This way we can get an exact snapshot of all the traffic that left the router.

Yes I'm familiar with dd-wrt and other custom firmwares. But some pro grade routers are not supported under any of those custom fw's.

I haven't even though about snmp logs. I will need to do some research.

I promised my 4 kids a fun weekend, so some time next week I will get the option added to turn off local traffic logging :-)
