dermine exact Link bandwidth & set alert on that in percentage



I set notification alerts on our critical links for that I calculated exact 70% of my bandwidth link & set the threshold value maually in Kbps

Is there any way that PRTG will automatically sence exact amount of link bandwidth assign to any interface & then calculate 70% of that & on that it will trigger notification alerts

So in future if I increased amount of bandwidth for our link then no manual intervation required to change threshold value.

Thanks.Please suggest if I can do anything about it.

thank you very much for your KB-Post. I'm very sorry, in the moment it is necessary to calculate the bandwidth values for this 'threshold' manually. PRTG can't do this automatically to only use xx % of a line, sorry.

best regards.
