Internet bandwidth representation

Hi,

I'm new at using PRTG and was wondering how do I better represent our bandwidth? We have 100mbps up and down given by our ISP. How can I make it look like that if all of our traffic is almost 100mbps up or down on a sensor?

Hi there,

Without any further details about your infrastructure, I'll try explaining using a simple scenario where there is a switch with one particular interface where all internet traffic is going through. When adding an SNMP Traffic Sensor to this particular interface, you can then set limits in the sensor when the measured bandwidth reaches certain thresholds.

Please also find here more details about bandwidth monitoring:

We have a firewall just before the ISP and we have an external port. I have placed a sensor for that but was wondering how can I represent the data better if our 100mb is being used up going out or going in.

Have you tried setting limits inside the in and out channel of the traffic sensor for this interface?
