by default, darkstat monitors br-lan. where is the configuration where i can change which interface it monitors?
You probably mean darkstat...
Yes darkstat. Don't know how I came with that name
And thanks for the reply.
Hm, that is weird. When I open /etc/config/darkstat,
it says it listens on interface "lan" - when I try to change it to "br-lan", it fails to start. And it indeed seems to listen on br-lan, but why is just "lan" in the config file?
A couple a questions.
1)I would just like to monitor how much traffic originates from device on my local network. It seems the option "local_only" is designed for that, but when I enable it, al kinds of hosts are still listed.
- Also, I tried to make the stats persisent across reboots with the export/import/daylog options, but they do not seem t obe implemented in the init.d file as far as I can see. How can one still pass those options to the daemon? should it be filed as a bug/feature request. I am following this man page: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/wily/man8/darkstat.8.html (could not find much docs online)).
this is my config file:
config darkstat option interface 'lan' # option syslog true option verbose true option no_daemon false option no_promisc false option no_dns false option no_macs false option no_lastseen false # option httpaddr '0.0.0.0' # option httpport '667' # option network_filter 'not (src net 192.168.2 and dst net 192.168.2)' option network_netmask '192.168.2.0/255.255.255.0' option local_only 'true' # option hosts_max '1000' # option hosts_keep '500' # option ports_max '60' # option ports_keep '30' # option highest_port '65534' option chroot '/mnt/sda1/statistics_lede/darkstat' option daylog '/mnt/sda1/statistics_lede/darkstat/daylog' option export '/mnt/sda1/statistics_lede/darkstat/export_import' option import '/mnt/sda1/statistics_lede/darkstat/export_import'
go for it
Hi, did you manage to pass the extra config option to the
init.d file? I'm in the same boat.
No, I did not, sorry. Would be interested ot hear how to do that (and includign making the local_only option work).
