Sensor To Know Destination IP




I would like to know if there's any sensor to know destination IP? Say I have a device which has SNMP Traffic sensor, and I would like to know which destination that takes most or less traffic (The function is like "Torch" of MikroTik).

Thank you.

Hello there,
thank you for your KB-Post.

Please note that protocols like SNMP only provide "general" per interface counters, not additional details, so this is all that we can display in the SNMP Traffic sensors for example.

There are other protocols that enable in-depth details about the traffic on an interface, but that means that you device also needs to implement such protocols, supported protocols by PRTG include: Netflow 5, Netflow 9, IPFIX and sFlow.

Please have a look at the following to learn more about monitoring via flow protocols:
