Graphs set to show percentage of a fixed value

On a 10GB cisco switchport, a vendor is providing me with 2GB synchronous bandwidth (CIR or shaped), but the interface graph does not properly reflect the usage as a percentage of the allowed bandwidth - 500MB of outbound bandwidth should show as 25% of the total bandwidth allowed, it is showing as 50% since the inbound or outbound have not exceeded 1GB How do I set a interface to a actual bandwidth so I can provide management wiht accurate reports? Thank you

Hello,

Please click on the corresponding sensor channel (e.g. Traffic In/Traffic Out/Traffic Total), and in the channel settings, under "Data" please choose the option "Display in percent of maximum" and enter the maximum value of allowed bandwidth.

Best regards

Thank you, that is what I am looking for. This is a per sensor setting, cannot be set as a default, correct?

Hello,

You can set this option for multiple, already existing sensors, at the same time, in the following way:

- please click on "Sensors -> By Type -> S -> SNMP Traffic",

- select all desired sensors in the list,

- hover over the arrow icon -> click on Settings,

- click on Channel Settings -> select desired channel, e.g. "Traffic In" -> tick "Data" -> select "Display in percent of maximum", and there you can set a maximum value for bandwidth.

Please note that this can be applied only if multiple sensors have common channels.
