Traffic and Congestion Summary Report

The Traffic and Congestion Summary report is a standardized report generated in Network Director to show information about latency and port utilization on network devices. It provides detailed and trended information about latency and port utilization at the network, device and port level. This report supports any scope that includes devices that support high-frequency statistics.

There are two portions of the report: a report header and the report body. The contents of the report header are described in Table 1.
