Is there a way to have prtg send me a toplist when a traffic threshold is reached?



I get an email when the threshold is reached but I would like to see what user is causing the threshold to be exceeded. It would be nice to have prtg capture a toplist when that alarm is triggered and have it mailed along with the alert that the threshold is exceeded. Anyone know anything about doing that?

This would only be possible with the NetFlow or packet capture sensors, if they do have this. It would be very cool.

I haven't seen that as an option anywhere.
