Section 5.2.2 Checking Bandwidth usage

If you are a Bandwidth customer with physical servers hosted with Netmagic, you can check your bandwidth
consumption reports by going to the top Utilization tab and clicking on the Bandwidth Usage sub-tab.

How Bandwidth Billing works

Bandwidth billing is done by collecting input and output octet data on the switch port your device / server is connected
to. A bandwidth billing group is a virtual container that clubs multiple switch ports together. A bandwidth billing group
also has a GB / Mbps contract associated with it.

Let’s say you have four servers connected to four switch ports and you want two bills for them, one bill for two servers
and a second bill for the other two servers, we would create two bandwidth billing groups for you. The aggregate of
two switch ports would be the utilization of one billing group. If the aggregate utilization exceeds the contracted value
of the billing group, then you would be charged for excess usage.

Section 8 Checking your Bandwidth daily usage report

Netmagic offers both burstable and capped bandwidth. The excess bandwidth utilized by burstable bandwidth
customers is calculated using the 95th percentile method of billing.

With 95th percentile billing, network usage is measured and logged every 5 minutes throughout the month. At the
end of the month, the log of usage samples is sorted in descending order and the highest 5% is disregarded. The
next highest usage sample is the 95th percentile value and is the bandwidth usage for the month.

This section will explain how you can monitor your network’s bandwidth usage and generate daily, weekly, monthly
and even yearly reports for your team and stakeholders.

These reports will also help you track excess bandwidth usage so you can track down exactly when and where the
excess bandwidth consumption is happening.

To get started, click on the Utilization tab and then click to open the Bandwidth Usage panel as shown in this
screenshot:
