This is a new request that I haven’t seen in this Forum (though I may have missed it). But it is similar to the requests for a monitor of the entire subnet.
I also have requested a monitor for the network router (subnet), but this is an expansion of that and would also be a partial solution that I think would be within the current purview of Glasswire.
I need to monitor usage for my router and for my entire home network, but I have tools that will provide the OVERALL usage numbers required. (Netgear Genie provides an excellent “total” traffic meter by day, week and month. The Verizon website provides daily and to-date totals for each month on its router. Glasswire enhances these by allowing me to see for all my connected COMPUTERS, the detail by application throughout the same time periods. Thus I can determine exactly what drives traffic and what drives it.
What none of the functions currently provide is what I think Glasswire could provide for all COMPUTER devices connected to a network. But today Glasswire only provides the usage information on a BY COMPUTER basis for each computer that has Glasswire installed. I would like to see that information provided for each network (router) that the computer(s) have been connected to for a given period.
Today, my only control for usage monitoring on my network is to manually stop Glasswire if a computer (specifically a laptop) is moved to another network and then restart Glasswire when the computer is returned to my network. That is inefficient and prone to error and eliminates the information that could be useful for both that computer and for the other network that was connected.
Glasswire already captures the information that a new router has been connected. With additional software, it could parse that information and provide specifics for that computer for each network connection during a time period (day, week, month, etc.). Using the Remote Connection, the Glasswire client can compile and provide the complete information for all the COMPUTERS that were used as Glasswire remote servers during a given period.
While this could be provided by application (based on current Glasswire services), it is probably not of great value to do so, but the overall usage information by (router) network for a “Glasswire network” installation would be very useful.
I have limited this request to COMPUTERS because Remote Monitoring of COMPUTERS is a function that Glasswire currently provides. Expansion of Glasswire capabilities to various routers is a completely different request and function.
