Top Interfaces by Traffic

Top Interfaces by Traffic report reveals a ranked list of network interfaces with the most traffic for the selected interval. This is a useful tool for analyzing traffic symmetry.

Tip: Use Report Settings (WUG17.0N-SP2-REPORTS-SETTINGS-IMG) to display a graph that displays a side-by-side comparison of incoming and outgoing traffic volume.

Note: The same bytes can be counted twice where a byte total is noted arriving from a sender and the same bytes are counted when relayed to the receiver.

To display Flow and Packet measurements, click a column heading () for column selection list (). You can also include:

Tip: Interfaces with an index of 0 denote the NULL interface.
