Uplink Sensor Shows More Traffic Than Our Bandwidth



I was monitoring our primary uplink today, which is a 100Mbps circuit (from XO). I was seeing values as high as 155Mbps on the graph.

How is that possible?

Hi Doug,

Is that the only peak you see? Or are there multiple ones? What version of PRTG are you running? We've had an issue with SNMP Traffic Sensors until - although the spike would be much higher then....
