Adding Bandwidth Sensor Gauges to Map



Your Vote:




Firstly I was wondering if its possible to add bandwidth sensors that look like the devices/gauges small on the map. Next if this is possible I would like to have a few gauges that can grab the information from bandwidth sensors like 30 days total bandwidth peak, and total kbits for 30 days. Ideally i would like to monitor from the map my major network bottlenecks at the glance of a screen and also have a few gauge or widget type map devices that will give me the top sensor for the month/day for bandwidth and data flow. Is this possible?

Hi there,

In the Map editor are several "gauge objects" in section "Status Icons" you can use for that. Maps themselves however do no further processing of sensordata, they basically reflect existing sensor data without further processing like calculation of averages. To some extent you can do this by building a Factory Sensor for the calculation.

Besides that you can of course also simply drag and drop a 30 day graph from a traffic sensor into a map (located under "Graphs" in the Map editor).

Kind regards,
