    Can anyone recommend software (free preferred) I can install/run on my Win 10 laptop that will give me more detailed traffic monitoring than what I get just using the Asus router interface? Like I'd like to see, in real time, packet loss/data rate, etc... of each port on the AC68U's integrated switch as well as a Netgear switch that is fed off the router. Background monitoring would be nice too for troubleshooting connection issues over a period of days let's say.

    My quick Google fu turned up Spiceworks as one option that may or may not do what I need. If there was something that was compatible with Merlins Asus firmware fork or somehow integrated with it that would be neat too. I am running that plus Skynet and Diversion currently.

    Looks like Managengine OP Utils might also do what I want. Looking for feedback or recommendations.

    Thanks

    Maybe LibreNMS might fit your bill?
