VLAN Traffic line graph—This graph shows the data transmission rate on the Layer 3 VLAN selected in the table beneath the graph. The horizontal axis shows the times when samples were taken. The vertical axis shows the data rate, in bytes per second.
To show a Layer 3 VLAN on the VLAN Traffic line graph, select the Layer 3 VLAN from the table beneath the graph. To highlight a line on the graph, mouse over the line legend. To remove or restore a line, click the line legend. To see numeric values, mouse over a data point.
Layer 3 VLAN traffic statistics table—This table provides information about the Layer 3 VLANs as described in Table 1. Selecting a Layer 3 VLAN from this table updates the VLAN Traffic graph to display the traffic information for the selected Layer 3 VLAN.
