Hi guys, Im new to the site but I have been using Tomato firmware on routers for a few years now.
Currently I have an ASUS N16 running Tomato 1.28.
I noticed that my bandwidth logs are saved in RAM (temporary) and not saved permanently. It seemed like the best option was to log those files to a flash drive that way the router can be powered off and retain a bandwidth log. I would like to keep track of my weekly and monthly downloads and uploads.
Right now I have USB and NAS settings turned on (usb 2.0, usb 1.0 support both on). My flash drive is mounted at /tmp/mnt/logs (logs is the name i gave it in windows when formatting it).
the drive is a 4GB and formatted as NTFS.
In the bandwidth settings, I have the following settings.
Save history location (custom path) /tmp/mnt/logs/
I added the last slash to indicate that that is a directory. I am not sure if I should have done it like this "/tmp/mnt/logs or /tmp/mnt/logs/bandwidth.txt (or maybe no file extension is needed?)
The way I have it now is not working. It is set to save every hour and save on shutdown. It has been running all night and no file has been made on the drive. Neither FTP into the router or removing the drive and putting it on a windows machine shows any files.
real time bandwidth monitoring works but when I click 'last 24 hours' or weekly and so on, it wont work. The page is either blank with no data or it gives me a "the rstats program is not responding or is busy. Try reloading in a few seconds."
This makes me think my settings are wrong. Everything works when the bandwidth log is to be saved to RAM.
