I actually really appreciate the CPU temp graph. I actually do alot of hardware work in real life and its a huge hobby at home. seeing temp changes over time help me modify the router for better operation. Especially when I deploy the same machine to higher test environments. Temperature is a huge issue since some of the environments are not forgiving. CPU Temp over time really tells me the overall effectiveness of a cooling solution I have employed and is far more beneficial than simply seeing the CPU temp at any given time.

We've reached BETA state now, I've updated the list with the latest goodies.

Hi franco,

I tested opnsense a long time ago, and saw now from roadmap for 16.7 that traffic accounting is to be born :)

I am now downloading 16.1 to upgrade it for 16.7 and give it a try.

is there a plan for 16.7 to be released?

thanks,

none

Hi none,

Schedule for 16.7 is the same as it ever was: 16.7 in July (07) 2016. However, the NetFlow export/report bits will already be available with 16.1.14 this week. We've tested them a lot longer than usual, and now they are ready for general use. :)


Cheers,
Franco
