Help creating a sensor to show all traffic to akamaitechnologies.com

I want to create a new sensor that will show just the inbound and outbound traffic to any of the akamaitechnologies.com sites.

I see them in my main packet sniffer but want to create a list of just that traffic. I figured that I could create a sensor with wildcards but am a new/novice Paessler user and need a little help with this.

A typical entry for this traffic would have a Source IP simillar to this: a23-67-244-16.deploy.static.akamaitechnologies.com (23.67.244.16)

Suggestions or ideas on how to do this? Thx.

Hi

a23-67-244-16.deploy.static.akamaitechnologies.com (23.67.244.16)

If you want to see all traffic, you can use traffic sensor by snmp. http://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/snmp_traffic_sensor

If you want to use packet sniffer, can you create following sensors?

  1. packet sniffer sensor SourceIP[23.67.244.16]
  2. packet sniffer sensor DestinationIP[23.67.244.16]
  3. Sensor Factory sensor

I think SourceIP(23.67.244.16)'s sum is outbound, DestinationIP(23.67.244.16)'s sum is Inbound

#1:Outbound
Channel(sensorID,-1)
#2:Inbound
Channel(sensorID,-1)

PRTG Manual: Sensor Factory Sensor http://www.paessler.com/manuals/prtg/sensor_factory_sensor

Is it useful?

The packet sniffer (custom) sensor only supports IP, not FQDN. You have to use a filter rule like:

SourceIP[*.*.*.*]
DestinationIP[*.*.*.*]
DestinationPort[80]
Protocol[TCP]
