I can't be the only one using bandwidth monitoring...???
Here is an example of the initial settings you might use:
1 Gb/s = 1000000 Kbytes 75%= 750000 Kb 50%= 500000 Kb
Analysis of Test Results section
Max Traffic (in + out): 750000 kb/s 75%
Short-Term Threshold (for smoothing out spikes)
Max Traffic (in + out): 500000 kb/s 50% average over 915 seconds (15 minutes).
Sample Size: 915 seconds
You may want to run the Monitor configured as above and run a weekly Report at the end of the week. The Report will show you what was the maximum peak value and what was the average value for the week. This will allow you to set the proper threshold for the Monitor.
More information on the Bandwidth Monitor can be found on the following link Chris provides below..thanks Chris.
The link helps, and for some unknown breain dead reason this morning KB and kb were driving me nuts.
