Finding bandwidth hogs

I am looking for a way to find bandwidth hogs in my network in real time. I have checked other discussions and I know it's not possible with these Meraki MXs. This is very inconvenient and to be honest a firewall not be able doing a simple task like this is very disappointing. Is there any work around or an easy way to do this thing?  


Re: Finding bandwidth hogs

So I think the traffic analytics from Meraki shows us a lot of bandwidth hogs. Not in real time, I know but it gives you a good overview of apps or users that need a lot of bandwidth, so that you than can adjust your settings or cancel your employee. 😄


For the realtime monitoring of bandwidth we use Icinga2 monitoring system with check_iftraffic.
