.
•Speed Triggers: Trigger a notifications when a traffic sensor reaches a certain bandwidth limit for a specified time.

You are going to have to play a little. since this is device and network dependent.

All triggers may not be the same for each sensor, so first start with what seems logical for your needs for alerts and tweak as needed.

I hope this helps !
