The Interface Bandwidth report displays maximum and average values for interface inbound and outbound throughputs. This information is presented in a tabular data format and can additionally include graphs per interface. Because the flexibility of this report allows you to view graphs and numerical data simultaneously for multiple interfaces, you may find it useful for quickly reviewing recent interface metrics across a group of devices.
Note: The Interface Bandwidth report will not properly pull interface information if you change the name of the Interfaces- DataSource. If you would like to use the Interface Bandwidth report, but need to customize the Interfaces- DataSource name, you can clone the DataSource and simply edit the name of the clone.
Configuring the Interface Bandwidth Report
To configure the Interface Bandwidth report, select Reports | Add | Report | Interface Bandwidth. A report dialog appears that allows you to configure various report settings.
Configuring Settings Common to All Report Types
The first five settings that are found in the report dialog (Title, Description, Group, Format, and Report Access), along with the final setting (Generate this report on a schedule), are universal to all report types. To learn more about these global report settings, see Creating and Managing Reports.
Configuring Interface Bandwidth Report Settings
In the Interface Bandwidth Report Settings area of the report configuration dialog, specify the metrics you would like to track, as well as the resources for which you would like to track them.
In this field, indicate the duration of time for which data will be pulled for this report.
Resource Groups / Resources
From the Resource Groups or Resources field, limit the resources to which this report will apply by designating one or more resource groups or resources. You can use explicit names or glob expressions in these fields.
Note: Multi-glob lookup is available in this field. You can select a combination of both glob and distinct values to specify your resources/resource groups. For more information on LogicMonitor’s support of glob, see Using Glob throughout your account.
Top 10 only
Check this option to limit the report’s results to the top ten values.
Scale by units of 1024
By default, the graph is scaled by units of 1000. Check this option to scale the units by 1024.
Select whether the report should be text only or include embedded graphs (one graph per interface).
