Hi Ratnerefim

Just create an http advanced sensor, In the get field use a 1MB file (e.g. http://cachefly.cachefly.net/1mb.test) The sensor will download the file. There is a channel which shows you the bandwidth. Now define limits on that channel.

Please consider to change the scan intervall to 30 minutes or 1h.
