Weekly bandwidth report not showing correct data in graphs

I created a bandwidth report and set it to run weekly from Monday to Sunday. The problem I'm having is that PRTG is not showing me the correct data in the graphs. For example, we have a 20/20 Mbps circuit and the report is telling me the maximum bandwidth utilization over the week was 3 Mbps. I am 200% sure that is not correct.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

You can customize a report of traffic with a average chart and data table, shown separated channels by traffic input/output with the percentage of use in the 95th percentile.

PRTG Manual: Calculating Percentiles


Custom report 95th percentile with all channels using the table (averagetable).

Create the custom report saving the codes below in the

C:\Program Files (x86)\PRTG Network Monitor\webroot\reporttemplates

Custom Report

  • Save the code with the name A61 Data Table - Table 5m - Custom - Percentil 95.htm
<!--Data Table Only: Data Table (5 min interval) – Custom Percentil 95 -->
<!--5-->

<#include file="includes\reportheader.htm">

Hello,

Kindly note that the 2, 30 and 365 graphs display average values (performance-wise). The actual settings for those graphs are defined within Setup > System Administration > User Interface.

To generate a graph with raw readings or a custom average, kindly use the "Historic Data tab" you can use one of the available average intervals.

Please note that if the selected period is larger than 40 days PRTG will automatically increase the Average Interval to 1 hour average (because of the overwhelming amount of samples and data that the report would contain). This means that if you want to check the exact raw readings that were ever measured, you must perform 30-days reports at a time.

Best regards

I've followed the instructions in this post and created the 2 files on my PRTG server. Now what? Where do I find the report? do I have to build it?

thanks,
