Looking for Guidance on Bandwidth Usage

I have a FW that the customer wants to track actual WAN Bandwidth usage ( Peak [daily/weekly] and average [Business hours only].

to be honest I am unsure if the TZ firewalls can do this or if they can how it can be done.

Any thoughts on the best way to attack this request?

    Hi @KMBIT

    You can check the BWM monitor under real time charts (Under the monitor tab on Gen7 firewall) but this will only give you the last 10 minutes of information.

    If you are looking for historical data, you would need to look into something like Sonicwall Analytics.

    As TKWITS suggests, SNMP monitoring software. Try PRTG it's very simple to use.
