Hi Dirk!

Are you basically asking if 60 seconds is enough to capture all traffic for trunk ports?

Good morning Stphan,

thank you for your respone. Yes this is the question. If I would leave the 1 minute for monitoring the trunks a lot can occure in 1 minute, which I dont get to know.

Thank you in advance.

PRTG basically measures the traffic difference between two points in time and adds it up. Example:

  1. Traffic measurement at 10:00 gives 121 kbit
  2. Traffic measurement at 10:01 gives 150 kbit

This means that within 1 minute 29 kbit of traffic went through the device. That is what you'll see in the graphs. So you'll never miss any traffic, the interval only determines the graph resolution in that case.
