Bandwidth Utilization

Bandwidth Utilization is one of Observer’s most straightforward tools. It

measures the activity on the network and compares it with the theoretical

maximum possible activity on the network. While its functionality is entirely

incorporated in Network Trending, Bandwidth Utilization provides an

uncluttered, at-a-glance interface that simply, immediately, and graphically

shows the amount of activity on the network.
