Report creation




I have a wan sensor monitoring traiffic, this is set up using a bandwidth sensor and a packet sniffer, when you go into the actual probe you can filter top talker and connections, can a report be ran on just these rather than creating a report to run across the full sensor ?

Hi Chris,

With the packet sniffer sensor it's kinda similar as with the flow sensors and reporting capabilities are limited. We were working on more extended reports for flow sensors and packet sniffers, but due to the amount of data, performance was suffering, so we did decide on not providing that function for now.

Kind regards,
