We are a company of about 50 people and about 70 computers. our ISP provides us with 5x5 fiber connection. I would like to know how can i setup my PRTG to monitor if current usage exceeds supplied bandwidth and if we need to upgrade. We use Watchguard XTM 5 Series as our router/gateway.

Thank you.

enable SNMP on your watchguard, make sure the PRTG server can send SNMP requests to it, add the watchguard as a device in PRTG and then add standard traffic sensors to it.
