Visualize Link Usage in maps



Is there a way to visualize the current link usage? We currently use php-weathermap in addition to prtg to visualize the current link usage. With prtg I can only Link devices but there is no "semantic" behind the links. Is it possible to say for example "This Link is related to sensor xyz and sensor xyz has a limit of X" and then use colors or thickness to visualize the current usage of the link?

If it is not possible PLEASE implement it - it's a feature we really would like to see in prtg as we are really used to see with one look where congestions are happening or about to happen.

thank you very much for your KB-Post. I'm very much afraid the only way will be to indeed use the Traffic Sensors (for each port) separately and then use connection lines from this. Sorry.

best regards.

I agree it would be very helpful to have this info in the requested format. I have created a few maps that contain the port graph for both ports and then a line between them. It is not very user friendly to view.
