Understanding bandwidth usage with Sonicwall Firewall

Afternoon All,

I'm trying to determine bandwidth utilization without our organization.  Our consulting group who setup the firewall has routed all Server LAN activity to go through one interface on the firewall.  Then the DMZ is located at another interface.  I'm trying to determine how I can run a report to see the bandwidth usage for these two interface in like the last day, week, month, or etc.

We have a SonicWall NSA 3600.  Any help or information would be greatly appreciated as the sonicwall documentation is not very helpful.

Have you tried using Sonicwall support?  They are able to connect using a remote desktop application and can show you exactly how to do that on your specific sonicwall model.

They are extremely helpful.

I will try that.  Thanks.
See if Viewpoint was installed with your firewall. It's a subscription based application from Sonicwall. It installs on a server as a Syslog app. We have it on our TZ210W and I receive a daily report showing what sites and bandwidth each user used.

I'll see if Viewpoint is installed tomorrow when I get back into the office.

Sorry for just responding to this now.  Viewpoint hasn't been installed; however, I was able to get a free trial of their Analayzer tool within the firewall.

Thanks for the suggestions on reaching out to Sonicwall.
