User bw usage alert


I'm new to Checkpoint. We have several gateways at remote sites and 1 central SMS. Do you know if we can make any configuration to send alerts when an user's internet usage reach certain threshold? (managers said some users use a lot of internet bandwidth for personal purpose such as downloading big files, syncing mobile devices...) Also where can we generate reports for the same?

You can find bandwidth related queries in Access Control Report.

Go to LOGS & MONITOR and open a New Tab and select Views and open  Access Control

access control checkpoint

As for the notification you can get a notification with SNMP but I'm not sure where to specify a bandwidth top user Threshold.

For limiting the bandwidth:

you can define limit objects in a rule and specify upload and download throughput but one limitation with these objects is if you define this on a 2 member cluster the data limit you defined in the limit objects will be divide by two.

Hi Ni c,

I think the user wants to monitor bandwidth capacity filtered by users and send a notification if that particular user reach that capacity.  Eg: if user John Doe reach 200GB admin will be notified.
