Re: Tool: Realtime per IP traffic monitor for home/office

Tue Jan 24, 2017 5:58 pm

Hi,
realy great tool. Am I right that it is possible to configure it for more networks, but for one Mikrotik device only? I would like to use it on my laptop (both service and viewer) for many networks, e.g. at home, at work and at the customers...). Is there any way how to configure the SnifferService.ini to use it that way? Thanks a lot.

Thank you Daniel for your great tool.

I would like to suggest you something.

Is it possible to configure the same tool, to show you the CAPSMAN registration table tab, instead of showing the ip and the data.

I mean to show the cap, the ssid, the mac address, the hostname and the transferred data ?

This tool would be in handy in wireless hot spots.

That's because /ip accounting is not supposed to work for fasttracked traffic (more info here). If you need to use this tool you have to disable FastTrack.

Thanks for the reply! Kind of what I was starting to understand. From what I was reading, FastTrack can dramatically increase speeds, is that right? Also, I wondering if there's a way to externally signal RouterOS to temporarily disable FastTrack. What I'm think is that if the SnitchMonitor Service can detect connected clients, then it can send out a command to either disable or enable FasTrack depending on the presence of a user.

Yes, that's correct.

Well, that's not that easy. You can, for instance, use API calls to disable/enable fasttrack firewall rules, but the already fasttracked connections will continue to go fast path until the connection is closed.

If you need to use fasttrack and want to monitor you bandwidth consumption at the same time, I suggest you looking at /ip traffic-flow instead of the /ip accounting (traffic-flow works with fasttrack since 6.33).

Ok, I'll definitelylook into traffic-flow more. My first reading looks like I can use utilities that are built for Netflow protocol. Do you have suggestions on any tools? I'm looking for something can can monitor internet bandwidth usage per client with a graphical interface--essentially exactly what this tool does (except with fasttrack!).

ManageEngine NetFlow Analyzer used to be a good (commercial) product, but, IMO, is not anymore. They redesigned interface at some point (made it "modern") and it became awfully slow and less functional. I'm stuck at version 9.8 (was released in 2011). Also just google- there are quite a few NetFlow collectors available, both free and commercial.

Hi,
I use Attix5 traffic monitor with my routerboard 450. There a strange traffic named "other" that doesn't have any IP address. Do you know what the "Other" traffic could be?
Thanks

Re: Tool: Realtime per IP traffic monitor for home/office

Thu Sep 21, 2017 11:14 pm

Is there any way of overriding the default ssh port 22? To avoid brute force attacks, my Mikrotik is set to a different port.
The ini.file's port setting only overrides web, not SSH access. I tried changing the server to 192.168.1.88:5005, but that does not seem to register.
Any guidance much appreciated!

Hai guys,

before thanks for creating such amazing app, this is very helping me for monitoring my network.
and so i have read from the start till the end of this problem.
i have a time to make a simple step-by-step using configuration help from the app.
before my apologize if i make some sort of mistake by creating this step-by-step, i do not have any ill intention, just want to help everyone who have problems.

1st step:
enable your accounting on mikrotik ------ /ip accounting

Image

2nd step:
enable your web access accounting on mikrotik /ip accounting web access
enter your ip address local machine

Image

3rd step:
copy your service and viewer sniffer to c:\program files (x86) for 64bit or c:\program files for 32bit
ps: don't forget to change your folder name, anything will work fine

Image

4th step:
open your SnifferService.ini from service folder to change according your IP Network, Username and Password of your Mikrotik device.
also don't forget to change your mikrotik port www (default is 80), mine is 69
add port in front of AccountingPath if you use different port like mine, default port no need to add anything

Image

5th step:
open your Sniffer.ini from viewer folder and change the ip address based on you local machine.

Image

6th step:
open you command prompt as admin, then direct to your service sniffer folder and type exactly as shown.
SnifferService.exe /install
this will install Sniffer Service on your local machine service.

Image

final step:
open your task manager, and search for Sniffer service, then right click and click start.
you Sniffer service should be on Running state.

Image
Image
Image

and this is where you running the Sniffer Viewer.
Image

that's all guys, hope my step-by-step can help you.
regards and cheers :D

Hi all
I've installed and run the sniffing services and I'm sure about my configurations, as I've followed up help files and help videos...
i can see AccountingPath=/accounting/ip.cgi
sniffingservice is running on windows service manager,
I've checked out all ports (set 80)
firewall is off...
but whenever I start the "sniffing service " on windows services after it's started, I check Mikrotik Log to see if user I have created is logged in or what ! find it logged in then logged out automatically!
i donno why is that!?
sniffer.JPG
i would be so glad if u can help to solve this issue.
thx. :)

Re: Tool: Realtime per IP traffic monitor for home/office

Mon Aug 06, 2018 11:58 am

sir where i can download attix5

This is a great tool danielm ! Thank you so much for making this and for making it available to everyone!

I think I (may) be experiencing an issue similar to kendo (and it also does come back to how the sniffer service polls/collects traffic data from the Mikrotik).

I regularly have Winbox and Snifferviewer(Attix5 Traffic Monitor) open, and I often see traffic that is WAY higher on the Mikrotik WAN/LAN interfaces than the aggregate traffic seen in the Snifferviewer program. I don't think I have ever seen it the other way around, where the traffic in Snifferviewer is higher than the traffic in Winbox (and this isn't due to a delay, as Snifferviewer never comes close to reaching the peaks reported by Winbox).

Is this traffic simply not counted? Is it too fleeting/instantaneous for the sniffer service to poll? Or does it simply not register in the Snifferviewer program (and the cumulative send/receive data is actually counted)? I've unchecked the "use 5 sec average" box hoping to view more real-time traffic. Below are 5 printscreens showing examples of what it is I'm experiencing, and also wonder if other people have seen the same.

Still, great tool danielm! :D

Awesome tool! Really appreciate it. Thank you

As for anyone that can't login and/or check, change you HTTP service port in IP to soething other than 80, and define the mikrotik address in the .ini file as 192.168.XX.XX:yyy instead of just 192.168.XX.XX, where yyy is your http service port. Did that, works like a bomb.

Ok, so I tried this tool and it seems quite handy. Is there a way to see though which websites / services any of the IP's access? i.e. can I see if 192.168.1.107 access facebook.com, for example, and how much data is being downloaded from facebook.com?

hi,

i installed attix5 traffic monitor and successfully run sniffer viewer.

i see our ip addresses and traffic usage of them, but HOST column is empty!! i want to see hostname of per ip or user names. what is the problem?

i use user manager tool in mikrotik and our clients are authenticating from user manager users. (hotspot users in mikrotik is empty)

what can i do, to see HOST information in sniffer view? or is it a better application that can used for monitoring just the usage of users bandwidth and their traffic throw mikrotik?

thanks

You need to create ips.txt file with the following contents:
IP1=Computer 1
IP2=Mobile phone
...etc.

For example:
192.168.1.101=Computer 1
192.168.1.102=Mobile phone
192.168.1.104=Laptop
192.168.1.108=TV

Those who are not seeing hostnames in Sniffviewer, install v1.0.3, it'll surely work.

Dear Sir

I need help in Attix5 Traffic monitor in which it shows only one wan traffic where as the other one is also running but not showing.

Basically i have two connections and working simultaneously, the all connections are also given to bridge connection but the traffic only shows one wan usage .

Total usage in interface view is 30 GB (wan1-14GB & wan2-16GB) but traffic monitor shows only 14 GB.

Kindly support
