Is it possible to have a more granular view for the bandwidth utilization (upload/download)?

We would like to see a really detailed bandwidth utilization report for upload and download. Is there a way to get a report like that via the Meraki Dashboard?

Thank you very much in advance for your help.

I think this sort of depends on what details within the utilization you're looking for. Under Network-wide > Traffic analytics, you can filter for your Security Appliance and see pretty detailed usage by application. Are there specific utilization details that you're looking for?

What kind of detail do you want that you don't have now?

You should see this as different chart colors on the Appliance Status-> Uplink page.  UNLESS you have two WAN ports, then you lose the real time view of upload/download broken out separately, sadly. 


You can also click on an individual client and see the upload / download separately on the client detail page.


Overall, I think better real time visibility (something like iftop on linux) is one of the huge missing pieces on Meraki MX.  I've been asking for it for years.


Yes, you have good visibility when looking over a larger time span, but what if you want to see RIGHT NOW.
