Logging incomming and outgoing traffic for my PPPoE costumer

Fri Jun 25, 2004 10:11 am

Hello at MT forum,

I use MT RouterOS as Wirelles Router with PPPoE server. All my costumers get a static IP (10.0.0.2=costumer1, 10.0.0.3= costumer2, ..., 10.0.0.n=costumern) What I need is a feature that I can say: "Oh you have 600MB incomming and 2,3GB outging traffic this month until now.". So that I can read the actual traffic on evrey day while the whole month at "per costumer base". Second I have to reset the traffic counter at the end of the month to zero for each costumer.

Cool! I'll be waiting

Which Traffic does the ip.cgi accounting script messure? Only forwarded traffic or also traffic from and to the router (input and output)?

At the moment I solve the problem with special input, forward and output filter rules. So I can see the traffic online in the winbox IP|Firewall|Filter Rules window. But if I reboot the router without writing down the traffic for my three costumers, everithing will be lost.

Hello Uwe,

There are detailed instruction in the manual on how to collect the accounting information. It has been done many years ago -- just take a look at the manual.

Hello tully,

you are right, I read this in the past and it works for me with wget. But this mehtod doesen't account packets that goes through the web-proxy and this is a must have for me, because the most traffic in our environment goes through the web-proxy. So the only posibilty for us to use the accounting usefull, is to shut down the transparent web-proxy. But we won't do that, because we hit a least 20% of our traffic wit the proxy.

You will have to put the router with accounting closer to the clients -- or just make another box for the proxy.

I want to be able to havfe customers hit a page, we see what IP they are from, and they get displayed there current monthly usage. It don't have to be up to the second, but up to the day.

This is my requirement too. But it seems to me there is no solution if I use one RouterOS Box as Firewall, Access Concentrator and transparent Web-Proxy all in one solution!

If I want to have a correct traffic measurement, I have to shut up the transparent web-proxy feature or I have to setup a second box that does only Access Concentration (PPPoE) and traffic measurement.

This is no option for mee, I think this should possible with RouterOS!

Any MikrotTik stuff are reading here?
