I'm working on a bid for a customer that wants to be able to track the amount of time their members are in their facility. I recognize for several reasons why attempting to use network logs to do this may be silly, and this is a startup. I know I need a router. The router reports some data.
In theory, I've planned two separate member VLANS, and each VLAN will be supporting two different member types.
So far - I know I'll be getting an MX68
I don't know if/when I will be purchasing one or more MR36 devices. That depends on the behavior of the network in the space with the MX68 alone.
user type 1 - 2-hour network limit then booted off (can be managed with Guest access)
user type 2 - 10-hour network per month
user type 3 - 40-hour network limit per month
user type 4 - unlimited
I believe I can build reports based on logins by MAC address --> create client --> usage reports.
Is it possible to build a custom usage time report by start: login time, end: last seen + start: login time, end: last seen? Or something similar?
I want to get a baseline of time logged into the network then plan the next steps from there.
Let me know if there is a more natural way, or this is just a bad idea. Also - FYI - the time limits for the members, not my concept.
