Client Usage Alerts

Is it possible to create alerts for excessive client usage?

 

I am thinking it would be better to remove the bandwidth restrictions and just receive alerts for clients who are bandwidth hoggers.

 

For example if a clients downloads over 1 GB in an hour an alert email is sent. Or if a client uses a certain restricted web resource such as facebook, again an alert is sent

 

My motivation for this is to simplify/remove the current traffic shaping. Tell users the network usage rules and then monitor those that disobey the rules.

Kind of a big deal

Re: Client Usage Alerts

One could do network-wide alerting (see https://documentation.meraki.com/zGeneral_Administration/Cross-Platform_Content/Alerts_and_Notificat...). I wouldn't know how / where to configure this one for each and every client.

 

The only thing I could possibly think of currently would be handling this via API.

Thanks, if this does need to be done via API, do you know of a helpful starters guide?

Would love to see this as well.  There is some basic data like this under Organization->Summary Reports, but no way to get proactively alerted on it.  You would need to leverage the asset and write your own automation around it, sadly.
