Re: Tx/Rx rate in MI424wr telnet? ooh, that works too, and the mi424wr has 64-bit counters (i'm seeing a couple terabytes when i pull mine up). though "qos utilization" already keeps track of the speeds, no calculation needed, of all connections so all i had to do was pull the columns out and add them up for the total rate.
EDIT: though i have to rebuild my RRD/RRAs, i think your script that uses expect works a lot better since the counters on ifconfig seems more accurate than the qos engine on the router. some packets traverse the firewall through fastpath and it doesnt get counted along with the rest at all.
