Welcome to Fritz Speed’s documentation!¶
What it does¶
A small suite of Python scripts to graph the incoming and outgoing transfer speeds from a Fritz!Box. It can be run on a small embedded device such as a RaspberryPi. It uses the RRDtool bindings for python to output the graphs suitable for embedding into a website.
The scripts can be run without superuser privileges as a normal user, he only has to have the right file permissions to read and write to the round robin archive and to write the images.
How It Works¶
monitor-traffic.py uses this interface to retrieve the counters
for uploaded and downloaded bytes from the router and stores them in a round
robin archive based on RRDtool. A second script
graph-traffic.py reads this
archive and generates graphs of the traffic for configured intervals of time.
