Solarwinds & Cisco Live! Barcelona
Join us from the 29th of January to the 2nd of February at Cisco Live 2018 in Barcelona, where we will continue to show how monitoring the network with SolarWinds will keep you ahead of the game. At our booth (WEP 1A), we will demonstrate how SolarWinds network solutions can help. As a bonus, we are also hosting a pre-event webinar - Blame the Network, Hybrid IT Edition with our SolarWinds Head Geek™, Patrick Hubbard on January 24th - GMT (UTC+0): 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. There's still time to RSVP.

Overview

The calculation of Receive and Transmit variables for Current Traffic are displayed as Bits per second (Bps) instead of Megabits per second (Mbps) when added in the email content of alerts after upgrading to NPM v11.5.

The Node Details page displays the correct calculation in Mbps as shown below:

The following shows that the variables are added as Bps:

The following is an example of the email that is received after the alert:

Environment

NPM v11.5

Steps

  1. Go to Settings > Manage Alerts.
  2. Select the alert and click Edit Alert.
  3. Go to Trigger Actions or Reset Actions and click Edit for 'Sending an Email/Page'.
  4. Under Message, replace ${N=SwisEntity;M=Inbps} and ${N=SwisEntity;M=Outbps} with the following and save the changes:
    Received : ${SQL: SELECT CONVERT(NUMERIC(15,2),CONVERT(NUMERIC(15,2),(${N=SwisEntity;M=Inbps}))/1000000)} Mbps
    Transmitted : ${SQL: SELECT CONVERT(NUMERIC(15,2),CONVERT(NUMERIC(15,2),(${N=SwisEntity;M=Outbps}))/1000000)} Mbps

Note: If you are measuring the utilization in Megabits, you can always change the divisor to 1000 for Kbps or even 1000000000 for Gbps if you are in a 10 Gigabyte network.
