Monitoring traffic tool/web based(non-cgi?)/non-SNMP/low CPU usage/non-real time
 
Hello all,

I am in a big distress at the momement because I can't believe there is no clear information on most of the traffic monitors around.

I am looking for a monitor that should have the following features:
- light weight (will run on a 266 bogomips machine)
- should not use SNMP
- graphs a-la-MRTG would be nice
- results are viewable though a web interface (I don't want to log on to see the info)
- it should not display in real time the statistics


I have found bmon, iftop, vnstat and all look nice, but the main problem is that they are interactive.

I was thinking of making a little hack by using vnstat and netcat and make a "server" listen on a certain port, but I still hope something can be done to be allowed to see older data and statistics (I prefer graphs for that). One downside is that the router in question runs sarge and I will have to backport the package (it is an arm machine, and on backports.org there is no vnstat package).


Does anybody have an idea of a tool to satisfy my requests?

If all else fails you can always use a cronjob to read out iptables counters, feed them into a rrd database (with rrdtool) and graph whatever you're interested in. That's what I do on my router with 63 BogoMips. Works fine.

Thanks for pointing out the obvious and lowering my chances of getting an answer about the problem I have!

I had already said that I will do something of that type myself, if everything else fails.

Again. thanks for nothing
