    How can I have a report that shows percent of interface utilization

    johnlad

      Was curious, I am kind of new to the report writer in Solarwinds.  I was trying to create a report that would give me a report of any interface that peaks over 60% utilization in the last 5 days.  I see stuff that is similar but not quite what I was looking for.  For example giving me a percentage of average but not just anything that goes above the 60% mark is more what I am looking for.  Is this possible? 

       

      1. All interfaces that go above the 60% Mark

      2. Showing node name, percentage, and interface.

          Request: Percent bandwidth report on an interface.
          Go to Orion Web-based Reports  Home-Reports

          Click on the square box and select Duplicate & Edit / In this case we will do a Percent Bandwidth Transmitted report

          Change the report name to something that makes sense, for example:
