Statistics Export

See Statistics Export via POST for details about exporting the measurement data via HTTP POST requests.

SSH port forwarding

This option allows to use an external SSH server as an proxy to access the device. Via port forwarding the client PC accesses the SSH proxy which forwards the traffic to the actual Allegro Network Multimeter. See Self-hosted_SSH_Proxy for detailed information how to set up such a server.

Allegro Remote Service

The Allegro Remote Service is similar to the SSH Port Forwarding feature, but the SSH server is provided by Allegro Packets as a public service. Traffic through is proxy is still end-to-end encrypted via your SSL certificate so the data is only accessible to you.

See Using the Allegro Remote Service for detailed information.


See SNMP for details about SNMP support.

Pcap export via SFTP

The Allegro Network Multimeter allows the export of captured pcaps via SFTP. pcap files can be stored in an upload queue and be automatically uploaded to a remote host once a day.

This feature only works if a disk is attached to the device.

When PCAP Export via SFTP is enabled, a new checkbox Save to SFTP export directory is added to the capture dialogue. If checked, the pcap will be stored to a special upload directory.

In the configuration view, it is possible to see the files in the upload queue and delete them or trigger an immediate upload.

SFTP export allows SFTP authentication via public key or via password. The public key is printed at the top of the configuration view. For public key authentication, the password field in the SFTP connection parameters can be left empty.

A "Test upload" button uploads a file allegro-upload-test.txt into the configured target directory on the remote host.

Public statistics

The option allows to enable a public access to some basic statistics, useful for basic system monitoring.

If enabled, the system can be accessed with the URL "/public"

Read Public limited statistics for details about the kind of information that are available under the public URL.
