Reporting in Web Interface

13 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

1 Other thing, I'm just having a look through the API but unfortunately I don't understand PHP to get it what I want in to a web page. It's it very hard to add current bitrate and quota amount/used quota in that php script above? Gavin.

Reporting in Web Interface

To bring up a really old thread while bug shooting 2.7 standard: Regarding the constraint violation, when I went to use this old php script again to bring up some filter stats through my web server, a list of all the old filters is still displayed. The one's I've already deleted in BWM. Cheers, Gavin.

half duplex accountability?

13 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Thanks Andrew! I've sent you an email. So far the Lite version appears to run really well with those changes. It makes slicing up wi-fi bandwidth much easier. It's almost like a small version of dynamic bandwidth for half-duplex links but with capped speeds per IP. I can see the other changes you've made such as remember bits per second display when you go to edit a filter etc... and future

But of course I'll backup my BWM Lite rules and uninstall this one. I may even get around to getting a standard version license one of these days, think I've said that b4. Something tells me the modification will be to the standard build Gavin.

In simple words yes Perhaps in programming not that simple? Cheers, Gavin PS: My ISP must be filtering email from the forum, I don't seem to get email notifications.

half duplex accountability?

13 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

This is something that would be handy although not important: I'm not sure if I've ever suggested this in the past; An option not just to choose outgoing/incoming or both traffic directions per filter, but also taking full/half duplex options in to account when selecting "both" on each filter. On a Wi-Fi access point for example with a connection speed of 1Mbps (half-duplex in natu

Thanks Andrew. BTW, for some reason I haven't received topic reply notifications lately in this board. Even one's I've ticked Send me replies to this thread etc... Is the board definitely sending them? Might be my ISP marking it as spam. Cheers, Gavin.

DefaultDelay=10 Hi Andrew, could you please tell me what exactly this setting in the ini file is for? Thanks, Gavin.

Critical Problems with BWM on peak hours

14 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

In reply to shunt010, Sounds very complex, but an awesome idea for those using a proxy. Wonder what Andrew thinks? I've had a go with using a proxy. But I had to double packet process everything so I could not only control the client hosts bandwidth, but also the proxies bandwidth to the Internet. I found applications not passing through the proxy I was testing were suffering from large late

Critical Problems with BWM on peak hours

14 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Correction: "then you're starting to head towards 750ms of signaling time USED on the link for sending data, until the link is full, then there's no time left to send the data and it's queued, then you get enormous latency until eventually packets are dropped from timing out. ". Gavin.

Critical Problems with BWM on peak hours

14 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

ED really hit the nail on the head. It's not BWM fault, it's your available bandwidth. It only takes 5-10ms to send a short ping packet through a 4Mbps connection (actually faster than that, but then you take in to account the signally speed of the medium the data is crossing). However, using a 4Mbps at half capacity, say 2Mbps, means you're using up 500ms (since there's 1000ms to a secon

BWM and IDE Compact Flash drive

14 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Hi, If I run Bandwidth Manager on a small PC running a compact flash drive instead of a hard disc, will this degrade bandwidth managers performance? Or should I ask specifically, when Bandwidth Manager starts, does it load all filters in to memory rather than rely on hard disc speed to look up the filters continually under normal operation? Cheers, Gavin.

Transparent Bridging

14 years ago, by kiwi_rock in Bandwidth Manager Forum

Found how to disable the automatic IP addressing. I had a funny feeling I came across it before when I was enabling IP forwarding/routing in the registry. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters IPAutoconfigurationEnabled -REG_DWORD 0 -VALUE Disables the automatic IP assignment to all adaptors. There's a way to do it with individual adaptors aswell. Gl

Thanks for the info Andrew and as always I certainly appreciate your time. Whilst I'd like the full version I just can stretch my personal finances yet on my personal hobby. However to show my support for your product I've purchased the lite version in the meantime so I can keep playing with it :o) Cheers, Gavin.

Hey, Do I even need TCP/IP bound to the adaptors in order for bridged mode to work? Thanks, Gavin.

Thanks Andrew. I have a shrewd suspicion I can disable the Windows random IP address thing, although that doesn't bother me to much. I was going to make a windows routing box with bandwidth manager on it, although then I open the system up to annoying windows targeted worms etc... So my thought is to have it now as transparent as possible by disabling any IP addresses on the machine and

Hi Andrew, Long time no post, for me that is. I've gone full circle and I'm thinking of BWM lite to control connection speeds over a wi-fi link again. If I throw it in as a bridge, do I have to assign the adapters IP addresses? I realise I'd have to assign the adapters an IP if I want to remote configure BWM, but I don't really care about doing that. All I'm thinking of is setting up a coupl

Hi Andrew, I've been away from the PC for a while sorting out some personal affairs etc... so am just catching up on this thread. I've just installed the new 2.6 however these php scripts aren't working in 2.6 for some reason. I've reinstalled Windows and Bandwidth Manager 2.6 trial. In FireFox all I'm getting is "XML error: syntax error at line 1 (Content-Type field must be text/xml

Thanks Andrew, It works terrific with pi3web. Is there a simple way to make that php script display only the rule name required rather than all rulles? That way I could put the php script in to different user folders, then put a username/password protection on them so a user could only see their own rules. I realise I'd have to substitue the rule name for each php script etc... but I can'

Re: Reporting in Web Interface

I figured out that the p3web server I use has pretty good php support. All I did was install it the http server, create a simple .php file in the main website folder with a page counter in it and it worked. That's far easier than installing perl and modifying cgi scripts which I know nothing about to work on windows rather than unix which most of them are designed for that I download. However w

Hi Andrew, I was just thinking more about the traffic reporting, html or whatever output etc... I can understand the need for scripts for thosew anting to intergrate in to their own billing and accounting system since bandwidth manager has the xml output of everything etc... Perhaps the most useful for basic reporting for clients to access would ba an intergrated http service with username/

Mind if I ad this... If you're using the bridging function built in to Bandwidth Manager (Not Windows Bridging which doesn't function with bandwidth manager well, if at all), try changing your clients gateway address to 192.168.1.1, not 192.168.1.3. This should solve your problem IF using the bridging feature of Bandwidth Manager. Bandwidth Managers bridging feature is the easiest way to get

Anyway I've finally got a few cards in my PC to play with the bridging feature more. I'm using 2 older Intel cards and a Genius GF100TRXII (rtl8139/a) based NIC. Although I'll be ditching the Intel's soon, as I can not configure their IRQ to anything else than 9 and 11 which is shared with other stuff on the PC. The Genius card I love as I can assign it an IRQ of even 3,4,5 and 7 in BIOS and i

Wow I didn't realise how long it woudl take for a queue to empty if the bitrate is really low, ie: 9600bps. A long time from pressing stop on the browser. I don't think I'll use that speed afte all but it's good for allowing specific DNS bandwidth for lookups etc.. I've tried the port forwarding on the local machine only, and to no success. I created a filter for tcp/ip with the url of http://1

Hmm wish there was an "edit" feature on this board, haha. I really got sidetracked then, didn't finish my sentence before my brackets. Gavin.

I don't think I will be understand how to impliment such a script. Although the open developers of the software are very helpful. I found this in my documentation from the 2004 update: "PHP4 Support There's an embedded PHP4 module in Pi3Web 2.0 for fast PHP4 server side scripting support. PHP can be used as CGI nevertheless. The embedded PHP4 interpreter can be upgraded with the binary pa

When I mean not bright enough to figure out scripts, well, I've heard of php, but I wouldn't have a clue exactly what it even stands for. I know it replaces a lot of html files and appears to be something like a perl cgi dynamic page interface and that heaps of fourms use it. I'll go look though at my web server documents, I know it's a 10 year old web sever but there's something in the new re

Sorry, I meant I "can" live with the fact I'm not bright enough to do that, if it's only via the bandwidth manager remote client interface that is. Cheers, Gav.

Re: Upcoming Bandwidth Manager

Quote Yes, it is almost complete. there will be a way to see stats by user rather than by date, weekly and montly summaries, plus probably a little charts. Moreover, I can surely list the features that will be available shortly: Is this via the manager's client or web based? I'm not bright enough to know how to code, script stuff in computer language to display some sort of filter states vi

Hi Andrew, I remember you mentioned a newer version due out towards the end of April or May sometime(ish). You also mentioned additional reporting, I was wondering what kind of additional reporting are you working on if you don't me asking? Cheers, Gavin.
