Hi there I am junior admin and I need help regarding setting right counter in PRTG. We as a company have fiber optics and only 1/3 of total bandwidth is used through network (when measured over speedtest). When I connect direct just with laptop I have full speed of 50Mbps. So I wanted to track down what is using the rest . My idea was to sniff over PRTG each switch and router port and to see amount of MB that is going through and by following port I will find PC that is downloading something more than needed. I installed PRTG and I can see that with GURU wizard some sensors are already added. But how can I measure amount of data in total that went through port ? Please help, I know it may be basics but as I said I ain't guru And last question is, is it overhead to configure default sensors, should I register only 3 switches and nothing more ? Thanks
