Can i plot a graph of weekly bandwidth averages?



Is there a way to plot the average bandwidth over a given time period (Sunday - Saturday) continuously throughout the year? By continuously I mean, can I have a graph with data points showing the average bandwidth for week 1, average for week 2, etc?

the only way this might be possible, would be pulling the data yourself with the PRTG API and (if necessary) calculating it then externally (though you could pull averages directly from the PRTG API), and then displaying it.

best regards.

Thank you for your quick reply. If I could pull the averages directly from the PRTG API that would be great. I have no problem plotting the data myself. Can you please explain how to get the average bandwidth (be it daily, weekly, monthly, etc) pulled from PRTG?

I have been looking for the way to do this and have been unsuccessful. Thank you again!!

Please check the API documentation yourself, in your very own PRTG under "Setup"->"PRTG API"->"Historic Data".
