Traffic Service

The Traffic service uses the Windows Probe to monitor the amount of data transmitted to and from the full duplex network interfaces on a device. You can monitor upload and download speedsindependently allowing for accurate reporting on network interfaces that have a download speed that is different from the upload speed.

Service Type

SNMP

Instances on a Device

400

Device Class

Server - Generic, Other, Printer, Scanner/Camera, Switch/Router, and Server - Windows

Monitored By

Windows Probe

Interfaces to Monitor

Select the name or SNMP index of the NICs or ports that you would like to monitor.

Tip: Hold down CTRL or SHIFT to select multiple NICs or ports.

Scan Interval

15 minutes

Upload Speed (MBits/sec)

Enter the upload speed of the interface.

Download Speed (MBits/sec)

Enter the download speed of the interface.
