Traffic recorder on Mikrotik

Thu Aug 09, 2018 2:22 am

Hello!
Is it possible to record all trafic movemetns in routers os and save it all to log on hdd? Big log with all detail.
And is there any good interface for watching it?

You can use tool Packet Sniffer. It will allow you to capture packets and either display them, save them or stream them somewhere else. (if you are streaming them, make sure that you set your filter correctly so it does not capture packets which are being streamed.) for viewing, you can use for example Wireshark which can either open the file or capture live stream of packets.

See my MikroTik to Splunk project here:
viewtopic.php?t=137338

It uses IP Accounting on MikroTik and sends data using Sylog to Splunk to Graph the data.
See screenshot of MikroTik traffic in post 2.
You can easy see whats eating bandwidth, when its used etc.
