graph averages



when i view the graphs in live data i can sometimes see my connection utilizing as much as 50 - 60 mbps yet when i go on the 2 day or 10 day map this decreases as if its averaging out the data over the set amount of days.

is there a way i can just view the traffic graphs without them averaging?

Only the Live graph shows real results. For performance reasons, the other pre-configured graphs have to use averaging.

However, you can change the available intervals in the PRTG Server Administrator tool. For details, please see PRTG 9 Manual: PRTG Server Administrator
