Percent Utilization Gauge

This resource displays the percentage of available bandwidth used for both transmitted and received traffic over the selected interface when the parent node was last polled. The resource displays percent utilization either as linear or radial gauges or as pie charts. Reported values are updated regularly, on the Polling Interval.

To find out when the next poll is due, go to the Polling Details resource for the node, and check out the Next Poll.


Thresholds specify which part of the gauge is highlighted as warning or critical values. You can change the warning and critical thresholds.

Click Thresholds, and adjust the critical and warning levels for the metric. This change will be applied on all monitored objects.
