ipMonitor Last Result data received by a bandwidth monitor

Updated September 26, 2018

Overview

This article describes the Last Result data received by a bandwidth monitor. 

Environment

All ipMonitor versions

Details

After you run a Bandwidth Monitor test, you can view the Last Result data by:

  • Accessing Live Reports within the ipMonitor administrator dashboard
  • Accessing the Edit Monitor screen by clicking Monitor Name in the Monitors list. The Last Result information displays at the top of the screen within the Monitor Status section.

Below is an example of the Edit Monitor screen with the Last Result data and how the data relates to the configuration elements of a bandwidth monitor.

The following table describes the Last Result section in the above example.

# Indicator Definition Description
1 rtt

Round trip time

Indicates that the packet required four milliseconds (ms) to reach the specified network interface and return a response to ipMonitor.
2 in 

Bytes in

Indicates that during the time that elapsed between the previous and most recent polls (300 seconds as specified in the Delays Between Tests While: Up field), 21.86 Kilobytes (KB) of data was received by the monitored interface.
3 out  Bytes out Indicates that during the time that elapsed between the previous and most recent polls (300 seconds as specified in the Delays Between Tests While: Up field), 21.86 Kilobytes (KB) of data was sent by the interface being monitored.
4 ttl KB/s  Total kilobytes per second

Indicates that the monitored network interface is currently transmitting (bytes in and bytes out) 0.15 Kilobytes of data per second.

This result compares to the value set in the Last-Value Threshold field. If the Last-Value Threshold rate is exceeded, the Bandwidth Monitor re-analyzes the data by comparing it against the Short-Term Threshold value specified.

5 ttl KB/s-avg  Total average kilobytes per second

Indicates that the monitored network interface is currently transmitting (bytes in and bytes out) an average of 0.17 Kilobytes of data per second during the sample period (in this case, 915 seconds as specified in the Sample Size field).

This result is directly compared to the value set in the Short-Term Threshold field. If this threshold is exceeded, the Monitor status changes from Up to Warn and may progress to Down and Lost as the Monitor detects successive failures.
