I am monitoring Cisco routers using WhatsUpGold v 14.2.1 Standard Edition.

I would love to add a report showing the top talkers on any given network.  Specifically I would like to see what IP addresses are generating the most traffic.

Could anyone detail how to add this type of monitor in Whats Up Gold?

Thanks in advance.

That would entail configuring "WhatsUpGold Flow Monitor" to record network 'flow' data that it could then report on. you would then need to configure your routers or other supported network devices to send to WU';s Flow monitor, where it would store the data in a SQL database for reporting.

Note Both the SQL database and any router/switch monitor have to do more work, could be quite a lot of work if you are monitoring a very busy network. please plan accordingly!
