Monthly Bandwidth usage warnings



I've got satelite links that cap at 30 GBs per month per site. I'm trying to find a why to configure PRTG to monitor my Cisco routers to send usage warnings at 25GB bandwidth used every billing cycle. so i can warn my users about potential throttling by the isp. I want to do this as a proactive thing with waring limits not as reactive running of reports. Advice would be welcomed. -Dclark

thank you for the KB-Post. This should be possible with a Volume Trigger on each such sensor. Configure it like the following example:
When Traffic Total channel has reached 25 GByte per Month, perform _YOUR_CHOSEN_Notification
The month should follow calendar months here (it isn't possible to define custom month periods here, it starts with the 1st of each month always).

best regards.
