Question regarding Traffic per day ?




I would love to know if it is possible to do the following:

Switch A has multiple VLANS. We need to calculate how many GB per day has been sent/recieved.

We have the traffic total in the Network Card sensor (via SNMP) but is it possible to make a graph ? Or calculation for this ?

fond the solution myself.

In the channel settings i put the kbit to GB and i took a report and theire is its displayed as a total traffic :)

Its hidden but its worth noting as a good feature to report towards clients :)

Thank you for your post.

The SNMP Traffic sensor records the volume of the traffic that has passed thru the monitored interface. You can create a report for this sensor, and you should get a total of the data that was transferred for the selected time period.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to graph these values, since they are not displayed in a sensor channel.

Kind regards,
