    I am using RT86U with AsusWRT firmware. Is there a way to monitor device usage please? I need to keep an eye on usage by a "guest" for a short time!

    If Asus cannot, is there a third party software that will do it please?

    Netdata is another alternative.
    Edit [I miss read and assumed you were using Merlin's firmware].

    Just for future clarification: Asuswrt is the name of Asus's firmware. Asuswrt-Merlin is the name of my firmware.
