Network Bandwidth Usage

PRTG ‘Top lists’ the focus is on the main Nuremberg, June 30, 2009 the use of suitable network-monitoring solutions provides a variety of data about bandwidth and their consumption. Not the mass of data is critical but the quality and the relevance of information and reports. Paessler has introduced the toplist feature with PRTG network monitor that automatically selects the most important data and clearly visualised. For Cisco, it is of enormous importance, to be able to identify exactly where the bandwidth hogging is taken and what data loads from the lines. Here, it is interesting what connection causes the highest traffic. Not the average values in the foreground – a professional bandwidth monitoring are relevant and the occurring peaks are really meaningful.

The administrator is able to draw corresponding conclusions on the cause of shortages from these values and to take action. The so obtained can also Findings incorporated in the further planning of the network infrastructure. PRTG Network Monitor provides detailed analyses with regard to bandwidth consumption, and network activity. The system shows the Toplists feature which users or servers consume the most bandwidth. When developing its software solutions, Paessler attaches particularly great value easy to integrate-to-use functions that are ready for use.

So has the specialist for network monitoring before already configured the three most common types of toplist. -“Top Talkers” which consumes the most bandwidth? -“Top Connections” which connection consumes the most bandwidth? -“Top Protocols” which protocol consumes the most bandwidth? These top lists are automatically generated, after in PRTG NetFlow sensors or packet sniffing sensors set up were, and can be adapted to special requirements. In addition, allows “custom toplist” the creation of additional, individually configured Toplists. More Information on this topic is available at the following link available: top_talkers.
