this should give you the right way.
Thanks for the response. I took a look at the solution that you linked to and it seems like there should be a much easier way to do this. Maybe I need to put in a feature request if one doesn't already exist for this.
Unfortunately there is currently no way to have NTA top charts sorted by anything else then bytes. It sounds to me like a nice feature request, so it would be great if you create a poll here on Thwack so others could vote it up
You could try using a report instead, since it's not possible to sort by packets within the charts..
If you open the report writer on the Orion server itself (Start > Programs > SolarWinds Orion > Alerting, Reporting & Mapping)
On the left under ‘historical netflow reports’, open the ‘Top 50 endpoints – last 24 hours’ report’
Under the report designer, go to select fields and add the packets Transferred Total field, or similar.
Ensure you sort by that field, instead of the total bytes transferred and this should give you what you need.
I would then change the name of the report in the general tab and go to file -> save as and save it as a separate report.
Finally, you could then customize the NTA summary page, or create an alternative one and add in a 'Report from Orion Report writer' resource and select your new report to be displayed within the same view you currently use.
