BandwidthD is coming back soon!
« on: May 25, 2017, 03:09:30 pm »
It's already up for 2.4 and 2.3.x snapshots. It is still being tested and adjusted a bit, but it should be up for 2.3.4 before long.

Awesome - thanks! Any idea when it will be available for 2.4? Just anxious, no worries though ... :).

It was up for 2.4 first. It should be there for everyone now (2.3.4 and later)

I see it there - thanks so much! Now I need to remember how to initialize the database (I like to use PostgreSQL).

Thanks again!

OK, one slight hitch ... ;)

I have been struggling to get Bandwidthd working with my postgresql server, thought it was me setting something up wrong. Then I checked the log on pfSense, found this,
May 27 09:49:19 pfSense bandwidthd: Postgresql logging selected but postgresql support is not compiled into binary.  Please check the documentation in README, distributed with this software.

OK, at least it may not be me ... LOL.

Is there a way to build in this support?

Thanks!

Any way to change the color palette? Kind of hard to see things on the dark theme...

...and now it's up for 2.3.4.

I've had a play on my LAN and really like the looks of the reports however it appears to not support PPPoE WAN are there any plans to support PPPoE

That isn't anything we can control, and you wouldn't generally want to run it on a WAN anyhow. It used to exclude WAN interfaces, I added them back because it's easier for me to test it that way.

You'd run it on a LAN where you want to see/track your LAN user traffic.

Hi,

Any thoughts about PostgreSQL support? Seems to be missing in this build ...  :(

Thanks!

Does it work if you manually run this:
Code: [Select]
pkg install postgresql93-client
?

I think the issue is bandwidthd, not postgresql related ... no? Here is what I saw in the log when I tried it,
May 27 09:49:19 pfSense bandwidthd: Postgresql logging selected but postgresql support is not compiled into binary.  Please check the documentation in README, distributed with this software.


Thanks!

The port doesn't have any way to set a Postgres dependency, though. It looks like back on 2.2.x it compiled postgresql-client before it compiled bandwidthd and bandwidthd picked it up automatically, which is ugly. I'll have to see if I can find a better way to make that work.

Hi,

I discovered that bandwidth statistical pages can be accessed without been authenticated...

That has always been the case with bandwidthd. Though I have some ideas on how to fix that, I haven't implemented anything yet.
