Ipfm Package From Dingetje For Run At V0.4.x

Support section for FREESCO v0.4.x 3rd Party Packages

Hello, there


It was pretty nice FREESCO Package to count traffic ipfm_0.11.5_dingetje for version 0.3x.

How to adapt it for 0.4.x?

Might try posting a request under "3rd Party Package Requesting", about 2 forum lines above this one. :blink:

Total bandwidth through the system is now shown on screen 6 along with current bandwidth on all interfaces. It is also shown if you run the "netmon" command from the console or through an SSH session. However to answer your question about ipfm. I suspect that this is one of the packages that would require rewriting the source code due to the kernel change. This is because the numbers were changed from 32 bit numbers to 64 bit numbers so the system could count traffic into the Exibyte range. Which on a rough scale would be a 100Mb network card at full duplex running maximum traffic 24/7 for about a year.
If you are afraid that you might make a mistake. The chances are high that you will never learn anything.

Ok. But how I can now see traffic for every local Ip in 0.4.x?

@Lewis: ipfm is based on libpcap (network capture), so I don't expect this to be affected by the kernel change because its based on a 'sniffer'.

I'll have a crack at converting the package to 04x standard, but I agree this request is made in the wrong section of the forum.
