Monitor Bandwidth between server and device.



Hello, I want to add a sensor to a device that will essentially perform an iPerf test between the PRTG server and an added device to record available bandwidth across an internal network. Is this possible?

I only seem to be able to monitor the the bandwidth a particular device is utilizing.

Thanks for your time.

monitoring available bandwidth is actually a little bit tricky as it would mean blocking the connection for everyone else. Please see:

best regards.
