We are having an issue where random machines send a numerous data from one site to another on a specific port. We can defiantly identify those machines based on the traffic volume within an hour period using the sFlow sensor. The problem is that we have to actively monitoring the system by keeping an eye on it.

Is it possible to include the first top talker based on the traffic volume in a custom e-mail alert? So the alert will tell us that this machine is now exceeded x amount if GB for this hour.

I'm afraid there no placeholders for Toplist elements that could be used for notifications.

Kind regards.

Could we please add that as a request?

Or, since the time that question was asked (April 2016), has this now been implemented?

Currently there are no plans to implement it. When considering something like that it's a mix of "how complex would it be" and "how high is the demand from users" and so far demand is not that high to consider implementing it I'm afraid.

Kind regards,

Erhard
