How are you monitoring the users, i.e. with what sensor type?

I have looked at the top 100 reports and that only does the average. I want to do the top 10 and not the average but the top 10 with the highest overall data .

What exact kind of sensors are you referring to here? And what exactly are you monitoring? Ports on a switch?

So, you do monitor 1 interface, which has traffic from multiple sources? I'm afraid then it's technically not possible with SNMP to see which source (user) created how much of the traffic then.

No I am monitoring 1 interface for each source, not 1 interface with multiple sources. right now I have 1,000 unites that I'm monitoring via the bandwidth sensor for each unit. Now I want to see the top 10 bandwidth users out of that 1000.

The only option would still be the "Top 100 Bandwith Report", which used averages for the speed values. The volume-values are not changed by the averages though. To only show the Top 10 though, it would be necessary to change the used template, respectively it's detail-htm-file, like for example the following changed 60 minutes version ("Stats Loop HiLo 60.htm" in the "\PRTG Network Monitor\website\reporttemplates\details" folder):

<!-- Template Stats Loop HiLo 60.htm-->
<h2>
<span style="<#clusterdependent showfor='clusterinstallation'>">
    <#lang key="html.reporttemplates.clusternode" default="Cluster Node"> <#cluster type="name" clgid="<@clgid>">:
</span>
<#lang key="html.reporttemplates.highest" default="Highest Averages"> (60 <#lang key="html.reporttemplates.minuteinterval" default="Minute Interval">)</h2>

<div><#report type="statstable" columns="sensor,average,minimum,maximum,probegroupdevice" count="10" avg="3600" sortby="average" showposition="true" clgid="<@clgid>"></div>

We would recommend to create a new report-template and a new detail-htm-file for this.

Of course you need to run the report with a period of 30 days then.

so Highest Averages (60 Minute Interval) just means its, pulling the highest average every 60 min?

That means a 60 minute average is built from the monitoring data (for example with a 1 minute scanning interval, 60 values would be taken and averaged). But this, as said, only applies for the speed values, the volumes are not averaged.

ok... then is there a way to have the normal data report be changed to show the top 10 data sensors?

I do not see where the normal reports show the volumes. all the reports i have ran only show the averages on the sensors.

I am currently watching 25 bandwidth senors. what my goal is to do a report to show the top bandwidth senors total volume and not the average. I have a tag on each of the sensors so when i run the report, i tell it to pull that specific tag.

once i get this figured out i will be upgrading my sensors limit to unlimited.

thanks

The normal reports on SNMP Traffic Sensors of course show reports, like the attached example of the Template (1h Graph, 1h Table-Averages):

Screenshot

And that volume is not averaged. It's the total volume from the reported period.

what report template are you selecting and is there a way to sort the report by most volume used to least volume used

It's not possible to sort for the volumes, and the Template was, as mentioned, "Graph with Data Table - Graph 1 hour interval, Table 1 hour interval".

Will this functionality implemented. It would be very useful to create more customized reports, and being able to sort the results of a report for Traffic Volume is essential.
