Real-time Traffic Graphs
IT360 generates traffic graphs as soon as Netflow data is received. The Traffic tab shows real-time traffic graphs for incoming and outgoing traffic. Depending on which link was clicked, you can see traffic graphs for an interface or IP group.Tabs above the traffic graph, let you view the graph in terms of volume of traffic, speed, link utilization, and number of packets received.
Click on Show Data Points drop down menu [below the graph] to display the legend, along with total, maximum, minimum, and average traffic values for this interface or IP group, for the selected time period.
The Traffic IN Details and the Traffic OUT Details show sampled values of traffic generated over the selected time period.
Click the icon to specify the hourly time interval for which you want to see traffic graphs. Click the Show button to set the filter and see hour-based values in the traffic graph as well as the table below. Click the Reset button to turn the filter off and switch to the regular traffic graphs.
The 95th percentile is the number that is greater than 95% of
the numbers in a given set. The reason this statistic is so useful in
measuring data throughput is that it gives a very accurate picture of
the maximum traffic generated on an interface. This is a standard
measure that is used for interpreting the performance data.
IT360 brings you the added advantage of drill-down to the
traffic graphs presented. As you hover the mouse over the plot-area you
can see a "+ " - cross-hair icon. Click on an area of the graph and
holding the mouse down, drag it to the point(time period), you wish to
further drill down to. For example : Having chosen a Last week report
you could choose to study two specific days by selecting them. You
could further drill down on until the time period you have chosen is
more than 1 minute. The button take you to a time period depending on the
time difference between the From time and the system time.
Thus depending on the time difference you are either taken to the Last Hour or Last Day or Last Week or Last Month or Last Quarter graph.
