Need to record peaks in bandwidth.

Currently a report only shows me the Average bandwidth. We need to also see the Maximum spike in bandwidth. With dual providers we have to be able to handle the entire load on either circuit when we have an outage and need to know what spikes we have in a given timeframe.

Thanks.

Hi,
you might then use the Historic Data tab of the affected sensors. You can choose to use the RAW monitoring data there where no averages are used.
Best regards

That is where I am at, Historic Data, I changed the Average Interval to Raw Data and still don't see a line listing the Maximum Peak. Looking at that report that way doesn't give me what I need either, I have to report on 5/30/120 minute intervals to my management team and doing the raw data doesn't give me the ability to do intervals.

Hi,
can you please send a example report and also a screenshot of your settings in the Historic Data tab to [email protected]?
Additional in the Historic Data "report" you can define timframes individually by selecting the range from the datepickers.
Best regards
