SNMP traffic sensor´s channel. "#/s" definition.




I would like to know why some definitions (display in option when configuring sensor channel) for certain channels (broadcast in/out, unicast in/out) are shown in #/s format. Could you please tell me what is this?

I would need to change it to kbit/s and calculate a percentage usage per link, however, this #/s is something I cannot understand. It looks like bits, but I am not sure.

Thank you very much!

the #/s is the unit for packets per second. This cannot be changed as the there is no other unit for the mentioned channels.
Best regards
