    You show this as reports. It would be nice have this as real time monitoring and being able to run past reports as needed.

    Great post.

    I really wanted to chime in, with the request that all of my "home untangle" users want.
    Daily, Weekly, and Monthly reports on total bandwidth used. Just like in the Tomato Firmware, that can be used on several consumer-based routers. Between AT&T's 40GB per month Bandwidth Cap, and Comcast's 250GB per month Bandwidth Cap, this would be a insanely valuable feature.

    Just wanted to add, that my office is needing this exact addon. We would be willing to do some beta testing on it as well. The ability to shape traffic is in high demand in our office.

    Thanks.

    Most of my other thoughts have already been mentioned. I think some type of sequential rule set rather than a simple multitiered system would be best since if you offered me 5 tiers, I'm sure sooner or later I'd need 6. Also makes it easier to move stuff about. I suspect that one is a significant undertaking so something along the lines of what PFSense does would be fine provided there's more than 5 basic queues. I think 10 would be probably be better.
    agreed on this - I'm thinking some kind of rule-based system (with wizards to make it easier for casual users)

    Agreed - I'll add "real-time" word to monitoring

    Regarding real-time monitoring, a nice touch would be a drop down filter list of Category of Apps. After choosing Apps, the next drop down would be similar to the drop down list of each App (e.g. Blocked HTTP Traffic, All HTTP Traffic, etc). Then the final button will be "Filter" or "Go".

    Assume that we had a new bandwidth management app that was simple and powerful - what kind of policies would people put in place on their networks?

    some examples I've heard thus far:
    - monitor bandwidth consumption (reports)
    - visualize real-time bandwidth consumption
    - restrict some applications/websites to certain allocations (youtube to 5kb/sec)
    - prioritize traffic such that some activities can never take bandwidth from mission critical apps (voip, salesforce.com, etc)
    - prioritize traffic such that latency critical applications don't suffer (voip, games, etc)
    - give a specific user or machine a quota (500Mb/day)
    - give everyone quotas (500Mb/day) and after they use the quota the have very little bandwidth (ie - the penalty box like a 10kb/sec limit)
    For a school environment I would be looking at the above, specifically giving users quotas as that would be the most powerful management feature.
    Perhaps also, based on user quotas.. if user X reaches/exceeds their quota, disable specific protocols (such as FTP, online media/radio protocols..)

    Dirk that is actually a really inclusive list from my end.

    The most important however is the ability to visualize real-time bandwidth consumption per user/ip.

    This feature is required for troubleshooting. It's really hard to find the guy who's driving the session counts over the top when you have to get into the darn shell.

    Catching this thread kind of late but it would also be nice to monitor using netflow. In doing this netflows should also be able to sent to a collector (larger customers) who are already using netflow for monitoring.
