What is Gargoyle?
Gargoyle is a router firmware that is based on Open-Writ Linux distribution. It makes use of Atheros and Broadcom chipset routers which also include WRT54GS, WRT54GL, and Linksys WRT54G, Netgear WNR3500L, and Asus Routers. It was developed by a team of developers led by Eric Bishop and was released in July 2008.
Gargoyle has several functionalities and one of which is its capability to monitor bandwidth usage.
Automated alerts are sent out to the administrator once bandwidth usage is relatively higher than usual. It is also equipped with technology that keeps users informed of limits, throttling, and quotas. Among its security features is its ability to block websites via identification of host names and IP addresses. This software also allows users to integrate new IT systems for minimal cost as usual Ethernet cables and other hardware are no longer required once this router firmware is in place.
Gargoyle is also equipped with DNS and other monitoring tools that enable users to verify whether network resources are ample. It can be programmed to only allow a white list of IP addresses and website so as to maximize security and protect the system’s vulnerability.
