    Easiest app to monitor bandwidth flows

    jhjh Member

    Can anyone recommend something really easy to monitor bandwidth flows? This will be for just one port on one Ubiquiti EdgeRouter 12 (support SNMP). I just need notifications if the transfer rate gets too high.

    SaaS would be ideal if it's not too expensive. Not keen on installing a huge system if I can avoid it.

    Ubiquiti's UNMS doesn't do this as far as I can see.

    Greetings of the day!!!!

      We use FastNetMon for this. I'd recommend you to take a look on sflow/netflow tools as that would give you the most accurate traffic stats (SNMP is just a snapshot of the moment it is being polled).

      You don't need to monitor flows, for rates SNMP should be just fine. Set up librenms, add your device and forget about it.

      ^ this.

      But I would highly discourage using this device for anything other than small office/home routing.
