PRTG / IPFix / Monitor each Interface

Hi, we want to monitor the protocols going down each interface at 3 of our sites... the sonics show realtime, but we want to record history so we can get a proper picture... we have IPFIX monitors working in PRTG to monitor the overall traffic, but we would like to monitor traffic on each interface... we notice that the Settings on the Sonicwall allow for "by interface" but how do we then connect in PRTG ?.... is this a Filter statement and if so what do we put?

    Hi @MHaigh

    In PRTG, try to use the SNMP Sonicwall system health sensor.

    You will get the portsheild ports and WAN port traffic and downtime alert. As well as you can get the bandwidth usage and system health alert.

    Thanks - yes we have the overall bandwidth already being monitored... we are specifically looking to get the protocols being used as we want to investigate what bandwidth specific applications are using.

    Hi @MHaigh

    If you need to see / investigate bandwidth usage by specific app/protocols, You would have to use "Packet Sniffer" sensor in PRTG.
