How can I trigger on unicast packets per second?



In notifications - volume triggers, only packets/hour, day, week or month are available, but the graph displays packets/second. During denial of service attacks I need to trigger on packets per second for alarming. Thanks.

I'm afraid you can only do this with a "workaround" via the Error/Warning-Limits. Set a limit there of maybe 60 for the Unicast-Channel, and then use a State-Trigger with a latency of 60s (scanning interval as well 60), then this should be 1 packet/second.

best regards.
