I’m once again tackling vlans on my network. Need to isolate and monitor IOT devices and traffic. Has anyone else done this? Could you share your experiences?

    Thanks @Pooh just moving this one over to the Fingbox category.

    @Pooh yes I will need to use one Fingbox per vlan I want to monitor. Each will need its own Domotz agent. I have other monitoring options as well (Firewalla, UniFi gateway and Turris Omnia) but they won't integrate with Domotz as far as I know. I am trying to concentrate network monitoring in one place (Domotz) to the extent possible. I've found, for example, that Firewalla has a useful feature to flag uploads - very helpful for IOT monitoring, but it also requires spoofing the gateway ip. So I use Firewalla for that purpose, but Fingbox for general network monitoring. Anyway, the concept of using vlans is simple enough. I have found getting to a working implementation challenging.

    @nexusnet thanks for your explanation! I believe Domotz is monitoring multi-VLANs as well. What is the set-up of these networks? And what are you trying to accomplish? Perhaps I can offer some more insight.
