IP Traffic - Real-time

The IP Traffic - Real-Time menu displays real-time bandwidth being used on selected network IP addresses/ranges.

Do not confuse this with with the Bandwidth/Real-Time function, which collects bandwidth usage based on a specific FreshTomato interface.

IPs currently on graphic: This lets you select the IP addresses/ranges whose bandwidth data you wish to display.

Hidden Addresses: Here, you can select IP addresses whose bandwidth is currently not displayed on the graph to be measured/graphed.

The graph has a 10-minute window, with a 2-second interval. Thus, it displays a maximum of 10 minutes of bandwidth data, refreshed a maximum of every 2 seconds.

RX numbers show incoming bandwidth (to the LAN).

TX numbers show outgoing bandwidth (to the WAN).


Avg: This applies a percentile to the image. This shows how a data point compares to the total distribution over time.


  • Uniform - Choosing this scales graphs to the maximum value recorded on all interfaces.
  • Per If (Per Interface) - Choosing this scales graphs based on data from one interface only.


  • kbit/KB - This toggles between displaying volume in kilobits/Kilobytes (1,000).
  • Mbit/MB - This toggles the display to volume to be expressed in megabits/Megabytes (1,000,000).


  • Solid - Choosing this option graphs bandwidth usage with a solid area.
  • Line - Choosing this option graphs bandwidth using a single line representing maximum values.

Color: This switches between various pre-specified color schemes for the graph.

[reverse]: This reverses the graph's color scheme. For example, a device traced in blue is traced in orange and vice versa.

Configure: Clicking this takes you to the Administration/IP Traffic Monitoring menu. There, you can enable/disable IP Traffic monitoring, and configure settings.

Cursor-Tracking Readout: Bandwidth graphs feature a a Cursor-Tracking Readout.

When you mouse over the graph, the graph displays the following at the top right corner:

  • Day of Week
  • Time
  • Bandwidth usage.

These update as you move your mouse.

The Cursor-Tracking Readout disappears after 5 intervals: that is, 10 seconds in Real-Time, 10 minutes in Last 24 Hours, and so on.

Mouse-Click Readout: Bandwidth graphs also have a Mouse-Click Readout: If you click on the graph, the date/time/bandwidth numbers display beside the mouse cursor. This readout is static. It does not update with graph movement or scaling.
