Bandwith Monitor

It would be great if we can get alerts if our pipeline is 1000 Meg's and we reach 90% of that twice in one week to get an alert on it.

    Hi @Pedro

    The firewall does already have quotas, if you're looking to manage bandwidth. Otherwise, I'd suggest looking into bandwidth reports using a tool like Dimension.

    This request, and the others you've posted recently suggest that you're trying to set up a very notification heavy server. I'd strongly suggest going the direction of reports that can be reviewed. If an admin receives a large amount of notifications in a short time, they'll generally start ignoring them rather than acting on them.

    For a bandwidth report, you'd be able to look at your bandwidth trends, and compare a rising trend, vice being reactionary on one specific alert, assuming it was acted on.

    If you do want to use alerts, I would suggest looking into quotas which can send alerts along with their set action.

  • Good request. I do this now with PRTG and SNMP which works well.
