    Average Xmit+Recv Percent Utilization

    willj

      Hi

      What exactly does it mean by "Average"? 

      I'm concerned because I wish to create a Custom Alert to monitor some server interfaces and trigger if the interface bandwidth > 50%

      What concerns me is how the frequency for "average" is calculated? 

      cheers

          I would not recommend using the average as it combines transmit and receive rates which is meaningless for a full duplex connection. I would use the below trigger. If you want to avoid triggering on transitory peaks set the trigger delay for 2 minutes and keep the "check for this condition" (General tab) at 1 minute. I added the custom property "Is Server" so you can apply it to the servers only.
