Hi, I want to put a hard data limit on the data usage on a real time basis to the clients connected to my Meraki access point. I know that meraki doesn't provide any such feature, but is there any another way of doing that? or some way to live track data usage of each client ?
we are looking to see data usage per user in a real time basis. if it reaches a certain threshold, we will squeeze their bandwidth with a separate group policy.
Not too sure about live but what I do is when I want to see who uses a lot of bandwidth I filter the "usage" section and if I want to get granular I go by SSID or even policy. I then can check if a client's usage for the last 2 hours and catch where they go and how long they've been connected/using data.
If you need it live you would need to use a third party netflow monitor:
Or perhaps something that transparently captures and anaylses the packets.
I sometimes use a packet capture and wireshark if I want to know "right now".
