Monthly bandwidth limit notification via interface SNMP monitor



Hi there,

1. I am aware of the reporting facility that can send daily or monthly reports. 2. I am aware of the threshold notification trigger that can alert of real time usage

What I am after is something that can warm me when a client goes over their bandwidth quota limit. It's basically a combination of the two functionalities described.


Client has been allocated 2GB traffic per month on a satellite service. Client goes over 2GB within the month and we get alerted.

Can this be done with PRTG, and if so, how?

in order to do this, please add a volume trigger to those sensors (or devices, as triggers are by default inherited to their child object) which counts volume for a month.
