Interface gadgets enable you to monitor detailed statistics from your network device interface such as bandwidth, percent utilization, broadcast packets and more.

  • To filter your search by name, status or type, you must specify the search parameter associated with the selected filter. For example, select Interfaces with Status method, and then select Up as the search parameter.

  2. Click File:Success_Center/New_Articles/ETS-MindTouchForReuse/040/030/020/03000007.png Gadget Settings.

    • been added to the Workspace Studio: select the devices, and then click Next.

      1. Enter the IP address or host name of a device.
      2. Select the device credentials used to collect SNMP data for the device, or click Discover a Credential.
      3. Click Next.
  4. Configure the discovery method used to find your interfaces:

View interfaces

You can view statistic across multiple interfaces. For example, if you have a device with two interfaces, and you can view outbound traffic as a whole instead of viewing two individual outbound statistics.

Select the interfaces to aggregate, click Aggregate Interfaces, and then click OK.
