Set monthly quota

Is there any way to set Daily or monthly bandwidth quota ( as in Gargoyle ) on LEDE as i have only 100GB ( download & Upload ) data plan

i have WR940N V4 (EU) with LEDE 17.0

I have same doubt... anyone?

Install iptables-mod-extra to use quota module.

# Set data limit, in GB
QUOTA=$((100 * 1073741824))
# Create a new chain named QUOTA
iptables -N QUOTA
# All traffic (up or down) counts against the quota
iptables -A QUOTA -m quota --quota $QUOTA -j ACCEPT
# Drop WAN traffic to/from overquota hosts
iptables -A QUOTA -j DROP
# Process any WAN traffic to/from your hosts with the chain, including the router itself (like DNS traffic).
iptables -A forwarding_rule -j QUOTA
iptables -A input_wan_rule -j QUOTA
iptables -A output_wan_rule -j QUOTA

To reset the quota daily or monthly, set up a cron task:

0 0 * * * iptables -Z QUOTA & # reset the quota every midnight at 12 a.m.

or

0 0 1 * * iptables -Z QUOTA & # reset the quota on 1th of every month

thanks a lot for your help
am a noob here

should i copy/paste your commands and put it in custom rules tab in the firewall ?
an the reset command in schedule tab ?

thanks in advance

Yes. Put the commands in the firewall custom rules and put the cron task in the scheduled tasks.

New quota shell script with the ability to save quota to local file. iptables-mod-quota2 is needed.

#!/bin/sh
folder=/mnt/mmcblk0p2/openwrt/var/log # A persistent folder to save remaining quota value.
default_quota=30 # Default quota in GB
quota_file=/proc/net/xt_quota/unlimited_plan
DEV_LTE=eth1 # Interface name of LTE dongle

[ -d "$folder" ] || mkdir -p $folder
alias ipt='iptables'

check_environment(){
	# Detect if xt_quota2 module is installed
	[ -z "$(opkg info iptables-mod-quota2|grep installed)" ] && echo "xt_quota2 module is not installed." && opkg update && opkg install iptables-mod-quota2
	# Detect if xt_quota2 module is loaded
	[ -z "$(lsmod|grep xt_quota2)" ] && echo "xt_quota2 module is not loaded" && modprobe xt_quota2
}

set_quota(){
	echo -n $((${1} * 1024 * 1024 * 1024)) > ${folder}/quota.log
	echo -n $((${1} * 1024 * 1024 * 1024)) > $quota_file
}

remain_quota(){
	[ -s "$folder/quota.log" ] || set_quota $default_quota
	cat ${folder}/quota.log
}

current_remain_quota(){
	local remain=$(cat /proc/net/xt_quota/unlimited_plan)
	echo $(($remain / 1024 / 1024)) MB
}

del_iptables_rule(){
	ipt -F UNLIMITED_PLAN_LIMIT
	for chain_name in forwarding_rule input_rule output_rule
	do
		while true

			[ -n "$(echo $line|grep -E ^[[:digit:]]+$)" ] && ipt -D $chain_name $line || break
		done
	done
	ipt -X UNLIMITED_PLAN_LIMIT
}

set_iptables_rule(){
	# ipt -t mangle -A PREROUTING -j CONNMARK --restore-mark
	# ipt -t mangle -A POSTROUTING -j CONNMARK --restore-mark
	ipt -N UNLIMITED_PLAN_LIMIT
	# After limit is reached, reject all traffic.
	ipt -I UNLIMITED_PLAN_LIMIT -m quota2 --name unlimited_plan ! --quota $(remain_quota) -j REJECT

	if [ $remain -ge 0 ]; then

How to use

  • quota.sh 30 # Set a 30GB traffic limit, check the router environment, and start counting
  • quota.sh set 30 # Set a 30GB traffic limit, and reset the counter of xt_quota2.
  • quota.sh save # Save the current remaining quota data to the local in order to avoid the loss caused by a sudden shutdown of the router
  • quota.sh start # Set iptables rules
  • quota.sh stop # Delete iptables rules
  • quota.sh reload # Reload iptables rules
  • quota.sh cremain # Output remaining quota in MB
