How to monitor router serial port connection?



My case is I have a cisco router that has a serial port connection. I want to monitor the traffic/bandwidth in that port. What parameters should I type in the Include filtering? Is it Port[x.x.x.x] , SourcePort[x.x.x.x] or DestinationPort[x.x.x.x]


bandwidth filter traffic

Thank you very much for using PRTG. Do you monitor the device with Netflow? On which sensor do you want to use this filter? Do you know the internal interface (on the router) number for the Serial Port? Then you can use Interface[ ] - filter.

best regards.

Yes, I'm using a Netflow sensor and also the filtering inside of it. Ok I got it now, thanks!
