Calculating Extra Traffic



Hi Dear Support Team, Is it possible to calculate extra (over limitation/threshold) traffic of a graph in a specific period of time? I mean, i want to define a limitation/threshold for data usage in a month for a graph. And at the end of the month i want to find how much traffic used over limitation/threshold totally. Thanks a lot

Hi Hossein,

Thank you for your post.

This is not possible in PRTG. However, you can create a Volume Trigger. This trigger sends a notification when a certain volume is reached in a defined period of time.

An alternative is to create a one-month report that contains a CSV data file. With this CSV file you can calculate how much traffic was used more than the limit. Please note that only specific report templates are supporting data files.

Best Regards,
Moritz Heller
