When I setup some bandwidth usage tests it set the last-value as 200k and the short-term at 50k and sample is the same, I would be good if these could be set in a template so when a new test is added it uses whatevers in template rather than IPMonitors defaults.
I use the following on all our gig interfaces. I might once its been running a while tailor each interface to a baseline based on the usage over a past month to try and get it a bit more streamlined and specific per interface. It all depends on whether you just want to know when the interface is maxed out or running high for a long period or if you want to know when its running higher than normal. It's similar to what we do with our CPU alerts and these are tailored to a basline for the server in question.
Max Traffic (in + out): 400000 kb\s
Max Traffic (in + out): 200000 kb/s
Sample Size: 915 seconds
That's immensely helpful, thank you. I'll try those out and see what I get with those thresholds.
