Is it possible to setup an alarm which will email me if/when a user uses 1gig of internet traffic for example? -i have enabled the bandwith monitor but one user managed to upload 10gig and I want to be alerted to this as its happening for example...
Are you only interested in internet traffic? If so that makes this difficult and a third party tool would be your best solution. However if you just wanted to monitor network traffic you could use a monitor set based on the NIC counters of Bytes Transmitted/Received though this would assume that the machine is restarted daily or at very least the counters are reset.
Yes, just internet traffic. The users leave their machines on and this isnt the first time the machine has uploaded a large amount of data, at first I thought it was a rootkit but I beleive otherwise now.
The average usage for the month per machine is around 300mb so if anyone uses over 1gig it would be alarming regardless, it would be great if I could get an alert stating "xPC has used over 1gig internet traffic" - Then I could login right away and investigate.
