Custom dashboard - date / time / uptime

Submitted by - Thursday
Status: New Idea

Can we get a custom dashboard widget that has the date/time and uptime?  An option for both local/gmt would be good as well.  Perhaps this could be used as an example as well.  The reason I wan this is that I get too much stale data and a quick place to look would be helpful.

1 Gbps IDS/IPS capable router for the Unifi USG lineup

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea


We have actually a "strange line up" for the Unifi Routing, which is still logic, but as time pass, the newly introduced IDS/IPS will need to be provided at 1 Gbps speed in a "consumer friendly" package



  • USG-3P (fanless) : gigabit speed, with 85-90 Mbps IDS/IPS
  • USG-4P-Pro (rack mounted) : gigabit speed, with 250-300 Mbps IDS/IPS
  • USG-? (fanless) : 10 (?) gigabit speed, with gigabit IDS/IPS
  • USG-XG (rack mounted) : 10 gigabit speed, with gigabit IDS/IPS


Sure, this depend on hardware capability from Cavium to deliver the right processor as the right price.


Note : no fancy screen, fancy stuff, just a fanless, small format router, like the USG-3P, easy to deploy at the propoer price for Ubnt and the consumers

USG Realtime traffic graph

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

So, I know it has been mentioned in other places (Specifically I have included a link to the forum topic) but I would like to create a new idea request specifically for realtime bandwidth activity. 


I have ran into several occasions where clients are limited in bandwidth and will call about slow speeds. I would like to be able to see at a glance what the current usage is and, if possible, who is using it. Right now I would settle for just a graph showing the last ~15min - 1hr.  


As it stands now, I am going to have to figure out some option of monitoring this. Sadly, in my own home, I am going to be replacing the USG with a PFsense box. It was either this or put in an edgerouter X as a transparent monitor and I would rather keep the device chain smaller.  The USG will sit on the shelf as I wait hoping this will be implemented. :-)


I hope the images below will spell out better what I and others like me would like to see. Ubiquiti makes wonderful products and I hope you all will see the potential in this suggestion and implement it. 


Looking at the controller I beleve these stats are already gathered so I would hope it wouldn't be too difficult to create a graph on the dashboard showing these stats.





This is ultimately what I would love to see. I am able to see at a glance what the traffic is and who my "top talkers" are. 




I would even be OK with just simply something that keeps a live update. 



I also have included a link to a couple forum topics discussing this further. Hopefully they might provide more insight as well.



Thank you for your consideration.

DHCP & DNS servers need significant work

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

I love Ubiquti products, but having installed a USG Pro-4, I'm left disappointed in the lack of basic DHCP and DNS settings that are available. Yes I know, I can probably achieve what I want to in the command line, but I shouldn't have to. The idea of UBNT gear is that it's easy to use.


What's missing are namely:


- The ability to specify (and view an entire list) of statically assigned IP addresses. I shouldn't have to click on each individual device to specify a static IP or check if one has been set.


- The ability to set hostnames for devices that don't specify one (or use a hardcoded IP). I should be able to create my own static DNS entries for devices that hostnames cannot be set for. In addition, the handling of hostnames for devices with static IP's (hardcoded in the device itself) seems broken. I shouldn't have to get an IP from DHCP to be able to browse to it by DNS name.


If you want an example of how it should be done, take a look at pfSense, OPNSense or even Windows services. 

Make it possible to receive an alert when a firewall rule is triggered

Submitted by - a month ago
Status: New Idea

I have blocked some unwanted ports with a firewall rule and would like to receive an alert when someone tries to connect to these ports. I asked from customer support how to do this and currently there is no way for a firewall rule to trigger an alert. I consider this to be one of the basic functions of a modern firewall.

Log all the changes of the transmition rates

Submitted by - a week ago
Status: New Idea

It you be nice that everytime there is a change in the transmission this information was logged, because this coud represent an physical problem.

The TX of an port changed from 1G to 100Mbps, log that.

1000 FDX changed to 10HDX, log that as well... 

This should happen for every TX rate change.


In the attachment there is a AP showing 10HDX, and it should be 1000FDX, but there is no log about it... It would helpfull to know when it started, so everyone could troubleshoot the problem better and faster.

Topology map - connection color based on utilization

I could be a great addition, if it was possible to enable colors og the connections in the Topology map, based on their utilization percentage.


This would be an easy way of visualizing bottlenecks in the infrastructure.Capture.PNG

Give visibility into WAN IPv6 connectivity

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

The UI does not give any visibility into whether the USG Gateway was able to obtain any IPv6 prefixes from the upstream provider.


This should be visible in the WAN section:

Similarly, there were no events around obtaining or losing DHCPv6 leases from the WLAN.


Some way of seeing a client's PORT history.

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Sometimes we find ourselves in the position of remotely looking for a device that should be on the LAN but isn't there now.  It would be helpful to see a history of some kind in the client, in the events, or in the Insights list.  Something like this:


Client History.pngEvent History.pngInsights History.png

Even if we only saw the history on Insights when it's on the WIRED screen, that would be helpful.  The event history shows the APs which a wireless client was last connected to which is helpful at times, so this would basically be the equivalent.  I know it current shows which LAN.


Any one of these three by itself would be helpful in that situation.  I don't know which would be easiest to include, but it seems (to me and I'm no dev) like one should be simple - probably with the event log one being simplest.


If somebody has another method to accomplish this, I'd be grateful.

[Hardware] New USG's based on EdgeRouter ER-4 and ER-6P (with PoE)

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

Right now there two amazing EdgeRouters are launched, the EdgeRouter 4 and EdgeRouter 6. Both perform great for an affordable price in a compact and energy efficient form-factor. It would be very nice if we could have those routers with UniFi software, using them as USG's.


The routing performance is impressive:

Routing performance USG USG-PRO-4 ER-4 ER-6P
1518 bytes throughput 3 Gbps 4 Gbps 4 Gbps 6 Gbps
1518 bytes pps 240,000 320,000 320,000 490,000
64 bytes throughput 512 Mbps 1.2 Gbps 1.8 Gbps 1.8 Gbps
64 bytes pps 1,000,000 2,400,000 3,400,000 3,400,000


If you compare the features you see that the ER-4 and ER-6 would be great additions.


Features USG USG-PRO-4 ER-4 ER-6P
CPU Dual-core 500Mhz Dual-core 1GHz Quad-core 1GHz Quad-core 1GHz
Power conspumption 7W 40W 13W 16W
Gigabit RJ45 3 2 3 5
Gigabit SFP 0 2 1 1


The ER-6P's five gigabit RJ45 ports can deliver 24 and 48 volt PoE, with 60 watt max. That's perfect to power up to 5 access points (AC Pro / AC IW Pro / AC Mesh Pro). It would be the perfect set-up for a small unifi installation: Just the USG-6P and 5 access points, plus the SFP for uplink.


I think a USG-4 and USG-6P would be amazing additons to the current USG line-up. If priced the same as the EdgeRouter versions it would be killer routers.


Line-up USG-4 USG-6P
MSRP $149 $179
CPU Quad-core 1GHz Quad-core 1GHz
Power conspumption 13W 16W

Status: New Idea

I would like to see the ability to have access to network tools such as the as Ping/Telnet/Traceroute/IPScan/Traffic Monitor from the GUI. Mikrotik has a large selection of utilities available in the GUI and Ubiquiti should also implement some of these in case techs don't have access to a desktop on site to run such utilities.

Request: DPI-Source/destination detail

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea

I'm kind of surprised I didn't find this elsewhere.  


While the catagories of DPI are all well and good, it's somewhat irrelevant when you don't know WHERE the traffic is going.  


Can you please expose that level of detail to the controller.  Given that this information is already being looked at, I assume that it's somewhat trival to add a couple of tables to track client/server relationships and related information.


For example, I have a VM host that has 11GB up and down of unknown traffic.  Even if that did fit into a catagory, I don't know where that traffic is going to/coming from.  This fits directly into a lot of security products in the same vein...while you might allow HTTP traffic to the world, if someone is abusing that, how do you know what to block?  


The source/destination should be IP to keep it simple with an optional field for URI information and/or internal host name.  


So either from within a paritcular catagory, we have something like...


<SRC IP> <hostname or nodename> <DST IP> <hostname or nodename> <destination URI> <rest of the stats as they are now> <connection time>


Once this information is presented, it expands the possibility of adding more searchable/sortable stats.  


While I appreciate the additional load this may present to the UCK, but even then, it should be minimal as it's really only adding a few additional tables, assuming that information isn't already there and just not exposed, but for those of us running our own HW, it's a moot point.


So please add this sooner than later as this is a bit of detail that I believe is very important to getting the most out of a DPI tool. 

USG Pro - DOM Support

Submitted by -
Status: New Idea



No one was able to answer me this, and Daisy from UBNT told me to post a feature request:

Please allow the USG Pro SFP port to read stat values (DOM: Digital Optical Monitoring) of an SFP (temperature, tx/rx dB and voltage). It might be due to being a dual personality port (w/ RJ45). The EdgeRouter X SFP is a router which I know has SFP statistics with the CLI command:

show interfaces ethernet eth5 sfp


These stats are necessary in order to determine the current status of the fiber and troubleshoot issues (w/ ISP).

It would be nice if you can make object based firewall rules (Network Objects like yoru VLANS and defined Networks, predefined Services/Protocols).firewall rules.PNG
