Your first suggestion can be achieved with the current Dshaper and
m0n0wall. Once the daemon is complete, I think that I'll automate the
calculation of configuring pipes so that one could set by minute, day,
hour, month using simple drop down.
**Feature addition: live traffic view for rules based on pipes to show
current live usuage and total used is in the planning.
**Feature addition: ability to save pipe/rule counters in config.xml on
reboots (This would be much better on hdd)
**Feature addition: statistics export via snmpd support
The other ideas you have expressed would not be something to implement
into Dshaper, but m0n0wall itself. I appreciate the feedback and
testing, and look forward to hearing more on how dshaper is working for
If you open up: http://<m0n0_ip>shaper-help.php you will see an example
on how to limit bandwidth for period of time with a maximum live
bandwidth not to exceed specified.

I use m0n0 for about 8 months now, so I deployed today 1.2 with Dshaper,
and I see how it works, its very good for advanced traffic shapping.
Basically one can set the daily ammount of traffic to be partially
limited but the question is, is there a way to limit monthly quantity of
traffic, lets say if I want to limit customer download per month to be
fixed to 10Gb, and I want to use advanced options from dshaper.
My suggestions (as I see our traffic shaping needs :) maybe someone else
wants the same):
1. download/upload limits per customer, based on fixed ammount of
traffic and time based:
- if I set 1Gb/month, customer can use the service at given speed by
the dshaper rules
-different limits based on network (we use local traffic to our IP
range at higher speed then to internet) 2. schedule option 3. I would
like to see option to check current client upload/download rate if
possible 4. easy allow/disable network access to local network/internet
for registered mac/client and default blocking of network access to
unregistered macs/clients on lan(now if I do not enter the client mac in
our system, if the client manually enters the IP address from our range
he gets unlimited speed access to internet, though I block DHCP to
unknown clients) 5. email notification of admin/root in case
thats all I have for now...
If I can be of any help, or donation for this contact me :)

Subject: [m0n0wall] Traffic Shaping - DShaper Images
I updated the latest 1.21 m0n0wall images to include Dshaper.
DShaper allows for variable bandwidth traffic shaping that can be
configured to adjust the size of pipes, depending on traffic volume
flowing. This feature allows one to limit amount of bandwidth within a
specific time frame.
The images are available for testing and feedback at:
**Images are NOT digitally signed**
+ generic-pc-1.21-dshaper-0.1.1.img 5.4M +
net45xx-1.21-dshaper-0.1.1.img 4.5M + net48xx-1.21-dshaper-0.1.1.img
4.6M + wrap-1.21-dshaper-0.1.1.img 4.5M + cdrom-1.21-dshaper-0.1.1.iso
Hopefully this weekend or early next week I can complete the daemon.
Feedback would be very appreciated.
