Adjust the interface transfer rates or percent utilization

This SolarWinds Platform topic applies only to the following products:

Hybrid Cloud Observability EssentialsHybrid Cloud Observability Advanced


Transfer rates and percent utilization for interfaces are based on the Transmit Bandwidth and Receive Bandwidth fields. Actual transfer rates are monitored instead of aggregate data, and the percent utilization is calculated in real time.

If the interface utilization is over 100%, it is usually because the Transmit and Receive bandwidth values for the interface are incorrect.

  1. In the SolarWinds Platform Web Console, select the interface you want to edit.
  2. Click Edit Interface in the Interface Details resource, and select Custom Bandwidth.
  3. Modify the Transmit Bandwidth and Receive Bandwidth fields.
