Bandwidth accumulation per device chart set
Today you can see information on instantaneous bandwidth use by device.
In managing bandwidth use at home (for services that have caps or limits) it would be very valuable to determine which devices use the most bandwidth over time (and perhaps then know who to talk with around possible behavior changes).
By having a chart set of (for example) day / week / month that one could see for a particular device as a follow on press to the instant bandwidth info (perhaps generated by periodically retaining and summing the instantaneous bandwidth information), one could make more informed decisions about how to best manage bandwidth.
One could even use this information tell if some unexpected device is using up more bandwidth than expected (say a WiFi camera that may have been compromised, for example).
As kind of an extension of this, what I’d love to see is a real time usage button broken down by active device. Coming from an enterprise world, it would be awesome to select activity and see all current active network devices and their specific bandwidth usage. This would be so handy for determining who’s the bandwidth pig and either talking to them or pausing them.
