    Default How do I ... bandwidth utilization report?

    I'm new to UT...still learning lots...

    Using UT 7 (no paid apps), how do I generate a report that comes close to a bandwidth utilization report? My goal is to ID the hosts that are using the most bandwidth out/in from the internet.

    UT is transparent between the switch and the router, so only internet-bound traffic should be going through...

    Any help greatly appreciated!

    You don't... until Untangle fixes it. Right now the only bandwidth related numbers in the reports are system averages. I've filed the bug reports about the per ip/user stuff ages ago.

    I don't think UT is really set up to log and track bandwidth utilization - you can scan the daily reports to get a feel for the client nodes that are heavy users... for instance, the Web Filter report gives the "Top 10 Web Hosts (by size)" & "Top 10 Web Hosts (by hits)"; Protocol control to see the hosts that are clocking the most sessions (on the protocols that you configure to log); Attack blocker - "Top Blocked Hosts" & "Top Limited Hosts"...

    Sure if you don't want you box to ugprade... go right ahead and install ntop...

    3rd party software is a bad idea for production boxes.

    ntop has yet to interfere with any upgrades. It's a pretty minimal install. I run it on my UT with 650+ users and have ntop update every 3 minutes instead of the derfault 5 minutes.

    Runs slick. Been there since 6.1 and has not effected any upgrades to this point, but that can change with any new version of UT but so far so good.

    With this feature missing in UT ntop is a MUST.

    jnettop does the job for me... and I don't have to modify the box. I'm just pointing out that ntop makes some rather healthy modifications to the way packets are handled by Untangle. And it is not officially supported.

    Mathiau,
    Jnettop is installed on the system.

    Open a Terminal and run:
    Code:
    jnettop

    jnettop doesnt show a history of what the ip or client was going to. It doesnt show the protocols used at the time. It doesnt show a complete list of the sites that client was going to. You need to have real data live, not 24 hours after the fact like the UT reports show.
