Monitoring Users

 

Purpose

Use the User Visibility page to view information related to the bandwidth consumption and session establishment.

Starting in Junos OS Release 19.1R1, Users option is available for logical system and tenant users.

Action

To monitor top 50 users, select Monitor>Users in the J-Web user interface.

Meaning

There are two ways to view your data. You can select either the Chart View or Grid View.

Chart View

By default, the user’s data is shown in the Chart view. It shows the top 50 users consuming maximum bandwidth in your network. The data is presented graphically as a bubble graph, heat map, or zoomable bubble graph.

You can reorder the bubble graph by bandwidth or by number of sessions from the Show By filter dropdown. The size of the bubble depends on the bandwidth used if you select Bandwidth in the dropdown. If you select Number of Sessions, the size of the bubble depends on the number of sessions.

The data is refreshed automatically based on the selected time range in the Time Span filter dropdown. If you select Custom, you need to specify the from and to date range in the Custom Time Range Selection popup window. You can also Edit the from and to date range.

You can mouse over the bubble to view critical information for top five applications, such as total number of sessions, bandwidth consumed, and application name. You can also view the top five applications the user has accessed.

Grid View

Click Grid View to view the user’s data in the tabular format. You can view top users by volume and top applications by volume. Grid view provides a detailed view of all the users. By default, data is sorted based on the bandwidth usage. Table 1 and Table 2 describe the fields on this page.

The data is refreshed automatically based on the selected time range in the Time Span filter dropdown. If you select Custom, you need to specify the from and to date range in the Custom Time Range Selection popup window. You can also Edit the from and to date range.
