Create a Graph
PacketWise includes dozens of graphs which you can display for a class, partition, or link. You can graph bandwidth usage, network efficiency, top ten classes, response time measurement, TCP connections, and compression. For descriptions and examples of all the graphs, see Preconfigured Graphs.
For your convenience, PacketWise lets you create a graph from any of the following pages:
From the Top Ten page, you have single-click access to a graphical report of a class' bandwidth utilization or compression statistics.
To view a report containing utilization graphs (Average and Peak Rates and Network Efficiency) for a class:
Note: The at the top of the list (next to Top Ten - Average Rate) displays a stacked utilization graph of the displayed traffic classes.
To view a report containing compression graphs (Compression Average Rates, Compression Bytes Transferred, and Compression Percent Bytes Saved) for a class:
Note: The at the top of the list displays a compression report of the displayed traffic classes.
The Monitor Traffic page offers a shortcut to the Statistics:Reports page so that you can quickly display a default graph (such as Class Utilization with Peaks for the last hour), or you can modify the report (select a different graph, change the period, etc.).
To create a graph of a specific link, partition, or class:
1. Click the Manage tab.
2. In the left window pane, select the link, partition, or class you want to graph.
3. Click statistics and choose graph. The Statistics:Reports screen appears. show screen
4. In the Object drop-down menu, select Link, Partition, or Class.
5. Select the graph name from the drop-down list in the Graph Type column. For descriptions and examples of all the graphs, see Preconfigured Graphs.
6. Specify the period you want to graph.
Enter a number in the Period column and select the units (hour, day, week, or month).
7. Select an end date for the graph. The default end date is now (the current date).
To change the date, select the month and day from the drop-down lists. You can change the date to any time within the past two months.
8. Select an end time for each graph. The default time is now (the current time).
To change the time, select the time from the drop-down list.
9. Click create report to view the graph.
