Dear Sir/Madam,

Can I generate a report for the top n traffic in/traffic out sensors? if this requires modification to default report, I can do that.

Thank you

Hello,

there is actually already a default report: Top 100 Most/Least Used Bandwidth Sensors. Isn't this what you want?

Best Regards.

Hi,

As I remember, that report is based on the average of combined traffic (both in & out), what I'm looking for would be (i.e. Top 20 sensors Traffic-in, Top 20 sensors Traffic-out), each one separated from the other. this would help me gauge BW required for incoming & outgoing traffic, hence better manage my links...

Thank you

This would actually require adding all the bandwidth sensors yourself for two reports and then selecting all Traffic In-Channels in one report and the Traffic Out-Channel in the other. I'm afraid this can't be handled in the report templates.

Hi, I understand, I have to do some manual work outside PRTG, but how to generate a report that includes sensor name Vs Traffic-in & Traffic out columns.

I was able to generate a table per sensor, which is not good, I need to process +70 sensors manually each in its own table, if I can get on table that looks similar to this:

header (Traffic in Max, Traffic in Min, Traffic in Avg, Traffic out Max, Traffic Out Min, Traffic Out Avg)

for the first columns sensors monitored, then I can sort it by any of the columns and submit my reports.

I forgot to mention that all these sensors are SNMP Traffic sensors.

Thank you

I am having the same challenge here. We are monitoring around 7'000 switchports. We need to be able to quickly identify switchports which are operating at their capacity limits. Total traffic does not help. Traffic In and Traffic Out are the important figures to monitor for a switch port capacity limit. Pls give us a TOP list capability for these figures in the next release !

Thank you

Any updates to this requirement. I have created a report with a list of top X Traffic Average. But the proble is: no top X of IN or top X of OUT Traffic.

And I did not found any possiblity to create the graphs just from the top X Sensors. I have always a table of top X and all Graphs for all Traffic sensor in my Report. Is there any possibility of having a Table of Top X Traffic Sensor and the graphs for top X (same as in table) traffic sensors?

Hi there,

Unfortunately, there is no such possibility at the moment. You are only able to see the round circle graphs in the toplists tables. Sorry for that. We might change this in the future but not at the moment.

Best regards.

Has anything changed in the meantime?

I also searched for a list with all available columns for reports. Is a list available?

Hi Tobi,

Could elaborate that a bit further? What information are you missing in your report?

Best regards.

Hi there,

You can usually see the "Max" and "Min" value within the Graph that is generated. There should be two points that indicate both.

Best regards.
