To monitor a WAN or site connection you first need the IP subnet range that has been assigned to that site. For a single site it would look something like 192.168.127.0/24

You will need to create a graphical trend. The LANGuardian allows you to plot traffic on a WAN connection on a graph which can be then used for troubleshooting or link capacity analysis.

To add a custom trend click the gear symbol top right of GUI, Click Configure trends, Add new trend.

You need to set the following variables:

Title: This is just a name for a trend.

Sensor: You need to select the LANGuardian sensor which is collecting data for this site.

Subnet: As with previous reports you need to enter the subnet(s) associated with the WAN site.

Template: By selecting total traffic you will get a graph with a single line showing total subnet traffic you will get two lines on the graph. If you select subnet traffic you will get 2 lines on the graph. One for traffic outbound to the remote site and one for inbound traffic to the remote site.

Click Add.
