Geographic reporting suggestion



When monitoring web servers, we often are looking at the netflow9 top list. With this sensor, we would love the opportunity to see a geographical map of where these connections are connecting from, displaying on a map.

IE: Map shows US states, cities that are looked up via detected IP address

If there is no road map for this feature, would it be possible to use APIs to build third party application?

I do like the idea, thanks for bringing this up. We do not have this feature on our road map for the near future, but using the API you should be able to get all necessary information from PRTG to create your own solution by combining it with a GeoIP lookup process.
