PRTG Feature request




Just a couple of feature requests we have thought of whilst using PRTG over the last few years

- Manually specify values when a link hits a certain percentage for example 600mb on a 1gb connection would turn red on a PRTG created network map.

- Lines between devices are auto adjusted to be thicker if the pipe between is bigger for example between two switches a 10GB connection/40GB connection would have thicker lines than a 1GB connection

Many thanks Sam

I'll pass along the request for the connectors in the maps.

As for the other one, you can specify your own custom limits for a channel in the channel settings. There is an option for Limits/Thresholds. If you turn this on, you can specify upper and lower warning and error levels.

Does this make sense?
