compare traffic



Hi, I want to compare traffic in a time with that time 24h ago. To notify if traffic increase or decrease. With PRTG can I do it? I use the traffic yesterday to compare because the traffic is variable. Thanks

thank you very much for your KB-Post. I'm afraid it's not possible to define Triggers to compare values (on any sensor) with past values on the same sensor. PRTG however tries to do this automatically with the Unusual Detection. Maybe you can use this here, by changing the thresholds for the detection.

best regards.

You can of course get the data from the PRTG API. Please see "Setup"->"PRTG API"->"Historic Data" for more details.
