Aggregate interfaces for load reporting



Your Vote:



I have 8 ECMP (equal cost multi-path interfaces) interfaces connected to a router that I can see without any issues.

Is there any way to create an aggregate report on just these 8 interfaces? I want a total bytes in and total bytes out for the entire 8 ports.

They are not reported by the switch as any type of aggregate so it would be an external calculation.

Hello afeind, we appreciate your inquiry.

To create aggregated reports, you'll need to create an 'aggregated' sensor. For that you can use our Sensor Factory Sensor: this sensor is a powerful tool that allows you to create your own sensor with channels based on data from other sensors. You can define one or more channels using formulas that combine monitoring results from other sensors.

Please check this KB article for instructions:

Best regards,
