MRTG and QoS


Well, since I made the switch from PRTG to MRTG....this has resulted in being able to monitor more stuff about my router. And, cope with the fact that I have two of them on my home network.

It has been interesting learning about the additional stuff that I can monitor, though it hasn't been all good.

I found that with Alchemy (though apparently not with Talisman), I can monitor the amount of traffic in the different QoS levels.

However, it only shows incoming traffic in the given QoS levels....and not the more interesting (to me) outgoing traffic.

The graphs are kind of misleading too....because like IVS traffic....I do mostly sends (and I wanted to see that the sends don't interfer with my VoIP traffic)...but the most of the recorded activity is at the Premium level. This is because I put SYN,ACK,NAK,FIN type packets at the Premium level. But, the bulk data is at the Bulk level.

Don't know if there is anything else better for firmware that will do this, and I don't know if I did find something if it would be enough to get me to upgrade. The main thing is that my router basically does what I need it to do...right now. So, there's no compelling reason to break something that is working. &#59;D

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
