Hi,

Although I am totally against this, we are already doing this (and keeping a year's worth of history). Keep in mind we move about 110Mbps of traffic average. We setup a linux box (p4/2.8ghz with 1GB of RAM and a 200GB drive) about a year ago and installed IpAudit. This single box is able to keep up with the traffic load and helps us track down customers that are infected, SPAMMING, etc.

We simply mirror our main incoming port on our backbone switch to another port, and plug the IpAudit box into that port. Works great. :)

Is WISPA lobbying against this?   It will be nearly impossible for most of
us in the wireless business to do this, without major restructuring, or a
huge expense that we can't afford.

Why would Qwest want ISP's to have to retain this data?
