Just chiming in with a request to find a way to support logging to a remote PostgreSQL database.  I tried installing the client from the suggestion above and also receive the message about PostgreSQL support not being compiled into the binary (same as arrmo).

 :) :) :)

THANK YOU SO MUCH for bringing back BandwidthD.

This tool is my 'go to' reference when I notice unusual traffic going across the network. It gives me an immediate snapshot to identify the device causing the traffic. Which I can quick cross reference to a user on my network.

I've struggled with ntopng since BandwidthD was removed. While ntopng is pretty it's not at all intuitive and pales in the ease of use I find with BandwidthD.

So, again, a HUGE - THANK YOU - for bringing this package back !!!

I love Bandwidthd! I was soooo disappointed when it was removed. Thank you to all that worked on the project to get it reinstated! Not everyone has unlimited bandwidth so I depend on this tool to tell me who is over doing it. I tried a lot of other tools even using free version of splunk which will turn you into a forensic investigator spending hours and hours.... Bandwidthd is point and click!  ;D

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.

I like the fact that it doesn't require auth for home use so I can easily share with kids and wife, I can see for commercial use that wouldn't be so good. If you do enable auth it would be good to be able to toggle on or off.

A bit off-topic here, but not completely:

customer asks to have the stats generated by bandwidthd included in a website on another server.

I want to keep pfsense as out-of-the-box as possible: everything restorable from config.xml. So I want to avoid pushing/rsyncing the generated html-dir *from* pfsense to the webserver, but rather have the webserver pull the date from pfsense.

How to solve that in the most secure way? extra ssh-user with minimal rights, and edit its .ssh/authorized_keys to only allow scp or so?

Another "Me Too" for for remote database support.  I ended up here AFTER I setup my postgresSQL VM and saw the "Postgresql logging selected but postgresql support is not compiled into binary. Please check the documentation in README, distributed with this software" error message in pfSense's logs.
