Top XX list resource percentages

Table of contents

Top XX list resources may be configured to show any number of items, listed in either absolute or relative terms of overall traffic percentage. Absolute percentages are calculated for each item based on all monitored items. Relative percentages for each item are calculated in terms of the total number of items displayed in the selected resource.

By default, pie charts are configured to show some, but not all traffic. You can see the rest of the data not included in the top XX items in the Remaining Traffic row in the legend.

Example

A given node, HOME, is communicating with other endpoints: 1, 2, 3, and 4. The following table details the two percentage types calculated and displayed for both Top 4 Endpoints and Top 3 Endpoints resources.
