    Default How to locate abuses of bandwith (downloads)

    Hello. I'm new here and with Untangle too.
    A simple question: can Untangle help me to find out users or services that are causing abuse of bandwidth?

    In other words, if i notice that downloads fom Internet and web browsing are much slower than normal, can I use Untangle to locate the problem. For example can I have a report with bandwidth usage per IP?

    Any reply is appreciated. Thank you.

    The GUI method? Check the attack blocker and see who has the highest reputation scores.

    The CLI Method? jnettop

    Thanks for reply.
    But... i don't see attack blocker scores as a good tool for this. I mean something more directly focused on bandwidth monitoring and logging.

    I ask if someone knows if it exist any open-source or commercial app for Untangle dedicated to this.

    you can install nTop or you can see in the report tool. You will exactly found what you want

    Look in the plateform Report / Activity Summury

    Good luck

    @secureip
    Your're right: the Platform > Activity summary on the Untangle Report shows exactly the amont of data produced by every IP of the LAN.
    That's good!

    What i'd need in addition now would be a real-time monitoring tool. nTop, that you suggest, seems to be what i need.
    I see there is only a tar.gz version for Linux, so i have to compile e hope it works.
    But can i install it on the the same Untangle machine i'm using?

    If you want to see instant information as Sky-knight said use jnettop from the CLI, you can see immediate information, but then the reporting is as cianoz said on the daily reports (if you have those enabled/turned on).
