Usage history, where is it?

Postby Messerschmitt » Mon Jan 14, 2013 4:01 am

I have ticked Enable Usage History for my resource monitor. However, I do not know where it is.

Also, is there a better way to keep track of my internet traffic made by my synology box? Something like DUMeter, but for synology, that can track internet traffic, but not LAN traffic from the synology box?

You see it under resource monitor. Looks something like this:

I don't think you can monitor external traffic exclusively from the NAS without some serious monitoring tool focusing on packets through your router.

Yes, but where can I see the history?

I can see that graph when I click resource monitor, but I would like to see the history (what happened when I wasn't connected to my box, or when the monitor was not open).

Isn't that the purpose of ticking Enable Usage History under Advanced Settings?

Select the history timespan in drop down box, in screenshot posted it currently displays "1 day" history.
