bandwidthd and darkstat not working
« on: December 30, 2017, 01:43:18 pm »
i am trying to get some logs or stats from what hosts on my network are using how much bandwidth or what kind of traffic are the host generating net flow type of info.

I enabled the bandwidthd on the WAN interface and checked the LAN underneath and i see the bandwidthd service is enabled under services but nothing shows up in the charts. Do i need to setup a postures DB in order to get info or is that optional?

what hosts on my network

I enabled the bandwidthd on the WAN interface



Use/enable/run it (BandwidthD) on LAN, not WAN  ;)
