    • Total Network Tunnel Traffic
    • Total Network Interface Traffic
    • Router Ingress Interface Traffic Summary: Hourly aggregation of all the ingress interface traffic on each router for a given day
    • Router Egress Interface Traffic Summary: Hourly aggregation of all the egress interface traffic on each router for a given day
    • Router Ingress Tunnel Traffic Summary: Hourly aggregation of all the ingress tunnel traffic on each router for a given day
    • VPN Ingress Traffic Summary: Hourly aggregation of all the ingress interface traffic for all interfaces within a given VPN
    • VPN Egress Traffic Summary: Hourly aggregation of all the egress interface traffic for all interfaces within a given VPN
    • Group Tunnel Traffic Summary: A matrix composed of all the router to router tunnel traffic from one particular group to another. Groups are user-defined.

    These reports are viewable in the IP/MPLSView Web interface. To access the web, select File > Launch Web. In the IP/MPLSView Web interface, go to Reports > Summary Reports. These reports can be exported to Microsoft Excel.
