Hi, firstly apologies if this is answered elsewhere but I've had a look and I can't easily find the exact solution to what I'm trying to do as I'm after something possibly slightly different.

I'm trying to find a way of monitoring individual device bandwidth usage within the LAN. Something similar to the DD-WRT in-built bandwidth trend pages but by device rather than by interface.
So far I've found and installed Yamon, but that seems to be targeted at the bandwidth each device is using through the WAN interface. What I'm specifically trying to do is find out usage within the LAN for kit like my IP cams, my NAS units, my iOT devices and then the PC's, phones, tablets etc. The purpose being to try and see if there's any potential bottleneck and help decide whether to swap my routers around if the higher usage is in the Office (located 60m down the garden). (WRT3200ACM in the house, and WRT1900ACS in the office)

My setup is like this...

ISP Router
WRT3200ACM (LAN)-------(LAN) WRT1900ACS
 (LAN)                                      (LAN)
   ¦                                               ¦
   ¦                                               ¦
iOT Devices                            iOT Devices
Laptop/Ipad/Phone                  Laptop/Ipad/Phone
CCTV                                     CCTV
Printer                                    NAS

I'm sure that this isn't an unusual question, so hopefully someone out there has worked out how to best do this?

Thanks, Matt

probb off topic..
IoT devices and CAM's are much safer on a isolated VLAN on one of the router ports connected in a switch that has a VLAN isolation that way they will not be in to common LAN pool...and than you can monitor that VLAN
