How to get accurate bandwidth readings without V2 support?



We are attempting to determine router interface bandwidth, but PRTG seems to be unable to do this for large (over 800 mbps) bandwidth ports accurately. Perhaps this is due to PRTG only supporting V1 / 32 bit counter. We have reset the scan time down to 5 seconds in order to solve, no luck What else can be done?

PRTG V7/8 support SNMP V1, V2c and V3. You can find this setting in the parent device's settings.
