How can I modify "Bandwidth Traffic IN and Bandwidth Traffic Out" ?



After restarting PRTG Server - I've noticed that "Bandwidth Traffic IN and Bandwidth Traffic Out" of some PC's has changed to high amount of "Bandwidth".

Before it was normally has the Bandwidth Traffic IN and OUT of 300 kbits/second but now it became to 1,500 kbytes/seconds or morethan.

What should I do to get it back to normal Bandwidth Traffic..? Hope my question and how I describe it was clear enough.

Thank you.

It could be that this sensor had a spike in data and that has set the maximum value higher for these sensors. You could delete these sensors or clone them to create a new sensor without these spikes then set those channels to ignore spikes.
