Yep, its the exact same situation as me, didnt have enough storage on my Mikrotik for the graph history.
It also keeps my bandwidth usage graphs all in one place, as I have graphs to monitor usage of all my WiFi APs, and also my rain and MTN backup links.

I am running it on a Raspberry Pi 4, but it can run on pretty much anything that runs linux.
Got it up and running - sort of. Still busy playing around getting the timezone data to be correct. And then I'll probably end up going down the Grafana rabbit hole again:X3:

Downloaded StarCraft & StarCraft 2 on my new machine yesterday afternoon. Download speed was a leisurely 890k/s. On a 50Mbps line.
YouTube stream of our church service was all pixelated too, so clearly there seemed to be an issue again. Either FF or Vox. Not sure, but I never bothered logging a call either.

It's absolute garbage.

I got https://github.com/ViRb3/wgcf to work with Wireguard on my laptop - if there are results when using Warp+, I will use it to create a VPN tunnel on my Mikrotik and tunnel all my traffic through them. ZAR1 per day is a price I will gladly pay if it resolves some of these issues we are experiencing.

Cloudflare Warp+ setup on the Mikrotik done. Now we wait for the inevitable congestion to see if it's changed anything.

I am honestly looking at going back to Rain 5G... This is ridiculous
Sad to say, my Rain 5G has been pretty shocking over the last week or so. Teams and Zoom have been virtually unusable and streaming often buffers, high latency being the order of the day. I've been considering switching back to fibre, but now I just think we're doomed either way.

Yup. I have no idea what magic Cool Ideas are doing but even Cloudflare Warp+ cannot seem to fix the colossal f**kup that is Frogfoot Fibre in PE:

So how is this for a laugh - my Rain router and SIM was collected on 5 March 2022. On 7 March 2022 we started having daily packet loss again, along with multiple outages (avg 10% packet loss):

Compared to when I received the router and SIM until I gave it up (avg 0.5% packet loss):

It's worth noting that I set my Smokeping to ping across the Frogfoot link exclusively, so it's not as if the graphs were using the more stable Rain connection. It just so happened that while I had the Rain connection, FF was behaving. And now they are up to their usual antics again.
