How to create average packetSize sensor



PacketSize (Byte) = BW(bps)/UnicastPackets(pkts.)*8

Using "Sensor Factory" this is not possible, because of the following error message:

"Multiplication or division of two delta channels. (code: PE2007)"

What could be workaround?

packet-size packetsize sensor-factory

Hey JevgS,

A possible workaround would be to poll the data manually using PRTG's API within a custom script, to calculate the average packet size in this script and to return the result to an EXE/Script Advanced sensor afterwards.

Please see our guide for PowerShell based sensors which might help you in setting up such a sensor.

Best regards,
