Cisco 4331 Aggregate Throughput



Hi Guys,

Hopefully, someone can help me resolve this one,

I am working with a Cisco 4431 that has a limit between 100 Mbps to 300 Mbps "Aggregate Throughput".

This issue I am getting is that we have about 10+ VLANs that have also been configured on onto this unit along with the WAN and trunk port, I am trying to get an overall throughput of the combined traffic to prove the bottleneck is due to the network maxing out at 300 Mbps.

Hello rdawson,
thank you very much for your inquiry.

You can aggregate the readings from multiple (existing) sensors into one by employing the Sensor Factory Sensor. Here's a guide showing a couple of examples of how to configure/deploy the sensor:

This could be used to generate a Traffic In/Out that adds-up the Traffic In/Out of all 10 interfaces in a single graph. Please let me know if you run into any issues.

Best Regards,
