others in the Toplist

Hello, at the last week I was apresented the PRTG for my custumer and some question grew.

why the "others" always appears as number 1 at the toplist connections ? I've checked the link below but my question is:

http://www.paessler.com/knowledgebase/en/topic/553-what-does-the-other-entry-in-my-topconnections-toptalkers-mean

for exemplo, I have a Interface serial netflow sensor with data filter only that interface. when I go check the toplist connections "Others" almost always is the first.

the same situation accur in Historic Data. the column others (speed) sometimes appear as higher. is very strange say that "others" is who more is spends bandwidth!

what is the better number for toplist ( for default it is 100 top ) when I have 130 workstation behind of the router that is been monitored ?? maybe change from 100 to 200 !?!?

what can I lost change the toplist ?

any tips is welcome.

thanks

Hello,

with 130 workstations there can be a lot of connections, way more than the default limit of 100 entries in the TopConnections, and therefore all the connections beyond 100, even though they may be small in volume each, together can grow to a very large volume, which takes place number one. You could try shorter Toplist Periods (5 minutes), or larger Toplists (maybe both). Please also bear in mind, 'Other' in the sensor results does not refer to the same as 'Others' in the Toplists. In the sensor results other means traffic protocols not detected by PRTG.

best regards.
