Calculate bandwidth used by PRTG



How can I calculate how much traffic or bandwidth the core server and its probes are using? Can I simply add up all the traffic sensors that are part of the probe/local probe sensor?

Yes, and you can do this with our Sensor Factory Sensor.


You can use this to add up all the Total, In, and Out channels to get an idea of the bandwidth each Probe is consuming and creating.

Bear in mind this will also include bandwidth created by other things like Windows Updates, RDP sessions, and any bandwidth related to any other software installed.
