vantage - A bandwidth analysis/reporting tool

SYNOPSIS

Vantage is a utility to log aggregate bandwidth usage for a local subnet (eg, your home network). It logs data to a sqlite database and has a built-in web server to display statistics.

Vantage is still quite alpha, but it is usable. Stay tuned for more updates as I fix bugs and add features. Also keep in mind that you can easily mine the sqlite db file with other languages (eg, PHP or Python) or the sqlite monitor itself.

OPENWRT

Vantage should be run on the gateway router of your network, so it is sure to see all packets leaving your subnet. If you have a router that uses the OpenWRT firmware, then you can use these precompiled binaries on it. I've also included a binary of my port-knocking daemon, knockd.

EXAMPLE USAGE

Start the capture daemon:

# vantage-cap -i eth0 -f /var/db/vantage.db -d 192.168.0.0/24

Start the web server:

# vantage-srv -f /var/db/vantage.db -d

STATUS

Development has ceased, but the software is functional. If you'd like to contribute to this project, please contact me. I do not have time to work on it.
