set max bandwidth in sensor



Hi. is there a way to set the maximum bandwith in a sensor ?

Example: We have a VDSL with 100 Mbit/s. So i want to set the 100 Mbit/s as maximum value. Unfortunately, sometime the value is bigger than 100 Mbit/s (1200 Mbit/s, don't know why), so the traffic total tacho grafic is wrong and shows not the "real world".

Thx in advance Holger

while one can set the maximum bandwidth in the sensor, this would only be used for percentage calculation. In order to remove the incorrect traffic reads spiking above the maximum, please use the spike filter.
