There are a couple of alternatives already available.


The NIC.BR, the Brazilian Network Information Center is the responsible entity for DOT-BR domains and had developed a system named SIMET, a shortening in Portuguese for "Internal Traffic Measurement System". It has version for IOS, Android, Windows and a version named SIMET-BOX that was developed based on OpenWRT and is open source. You can find the project on https://github.com/simetnicbr/simetbox-openwrt-feed. They only made available compilations for half a dozen router models that are easier to be found in Brazil.
