can you pull a Top Talker and Top Protocols report by interface and time period longer than 24 hours



Trying to pull a Top Talker and Top Protocols by interface and time period longer than 24 hours. Currently I can only pull up to 24 hours.

Hello, I'm very sorry but the Toplists cannot be reported. So it's not intended to have periods of 24 hours or longer on Toplists actually. But if you have Netflow Sensors filtering for certain IPs/Hosts then the normal sensor results can be reported and would also show bandwidth-amounts for certain IPs/hosts.

best regards.

This is a huge need for us - we often get inquiries about "who caused the Internet slowdown yesterday / last week?" Currently, I have no way of answering that without this reporting feature.

Perhaps the following article can be of assistance: How do I discern excessive bandwidth usage with PRTG?
