Identifying circuits using the most (or least) bandwidth

Use the PTAP Top Hitters report to identify circuits that have the highest percent of bandwidth use. Data used for this report is generated in 15-minute intervals with the most recent sample being used.

To run a Top Hitters report:

  1. Click the Reports tab, then click the Network Reports subtab. 
  1. Click Network Performance (PTAP).

    Control Center opens a separate window for CenturyLink PTAP.
  1. In the Top Hitters section, complete the following information:

    1. From the Interfaces list, select the device metrics.

    2. Select the collection sample. By default, you'll get the last collected 5-minute metric sample (FiveMinute).

    3. Select the value you want the report to be shown for (e.g., Bytes In, Average Utilization % Out, etc.)

    4. Select whether you want to view the highest or lowest items.

    5. Select how many items you want on the list. (You can have up to 50, but 10 is the default.)

  2. Click Go.

    PTAP runs the report and displays your results.
