New user wanting bandwidth to and from Mac mini



I am a new user who is trying this network monitor for the first time. As an IT consultant, I thought I should have a look at this in case it made sense for one of my clients to have within their network(s).

On my own network, I have a Mac mini computer that I would like to use for demonstration purposes, if possible. I would like to put in place whatever is necessary so I can see a report showing the total bandwidth of network traffic to and from this client. I keep this client on a static IP address, so please let me know what has to be in place for me to see the total bandwidth to and from this steady IP address.

you will have to activate and configure SNMP on your Mac and afterwards just use a SNMP Traffic sensor. For details on this, please see this article.
Best regards
