sFlow Sensor - Per User Traffic In / Out Log



Hi sir/Mdm, My non-profit organisation is currently evaluating PRTG.

A requirement by my supervisor is the ability to generate a daily log reporting the usage of in and out (to internet) bandwidth/traffic per user/ip.

In sFlow Top Charts I am able to see the Source and Destination IP addresses, but the historical logs only show total usage(s) at individual times.

Is it possible to generate more detailed reporting/log akin to the sFlow Top Charts without using individual sensors per user/ip?

From that report, I can then add in an individual sensor to the ip address to pull comprehensive bandwidth usage data.

If possible, how would I do something like this.

Thanks and Regards, Joel Li

thank you very much for your KB-Post. I'm very sorry but the Toplists cannot be reported. But with Sflow Sensors filtering for certain IPs/Hosts then the normal sensor results can be reported and would also show bandwidth-amounts for certain IPs/hosts.

I did just add your "vote" to the corresponding request to our Wish list! Thank you very much for the feedback! If you'd like, please have a look at the following blog post by our CEO, explaining "How We Rate Your Feature Requests"

best regards.
