16.1. Traffic monitoring

The Traffic monitoring section allows you to obtain a list of all user connections established through UserGate in real time. A connection is a unique combination of a source address, a destination address, and a user (if defined). For each connection, the instantaneous values of the transmit rate (TX) and receive rate (RX) are displayed. You can sort the output data by any column, and create a blocking firewall rule or a bandwidth restriction rule for the source IP address selected from the list.


Building this report requires a large amount of computing power on the UserGate server and can result in high CPU load if a large amount of traffic is transferred. It is recommended to not keep this page open to avoid unnecessary load on the firewall.
