traffic monitor



Hi, I've just intalled the evaluation copy of PRTG, I just want to know the topology for the installation in my particular case. I have a LAN-LAN link between my corporate offices and a warehouse, as it is a lan-lan link I don't have any routers, the interface is ethernet and it is connected from one switch to another. I have the need to monitor the traffic in that specific lan-lan switch. How should be configured the prtg?

configuration ip-traffic traffic-grapher

I assume the switch supports SNMP? If so, you might just use a SNMP Traffic Sensor on one of the switches and monitor the switchport which is connected to the switch in the other facility.
Best regards
