It depends on what specific usage information you're looking for.

 

  • MX WAN network usage graph is under "Security & SD-WAN" -> "Appliance Status". This will give you an idea of bandwidth usage going out of the MX
  • Client usage data is under "Network Wide" -> "Clients". This has per application breakdowns and you can drill down per client.
  • Finally, a very handy overview of usage across the network can be found under "Organization" -> "Summary Report"

 

Each of these graphs defaults to the last day but there is a dropdown to change to data over the past week.

It sounds like you're talking about the WAN data usage (for if your ISP caps your data usage for example).

If that's the case, you can find some data under "Network Wide" -> "Traffic Analysis" and select traffic analytics for your security appliances.

Then next to the work "Usage", you'll see the total amount down and up.
I'm not sure whether this accounts for SD-WAN tunnelled traffic.

Another interesting yet less elegant way is making a custom pie chart to track internet bound traffic vs internal traffic.

It's not elegant but it may work for you.

Getting noticed

I have found that the usage reported by Traffic Analytics is not accurate.  I opened a ticket with support and got a response saying that the support rep "was able to confirm that this issue has already been raised with the developers and we're waiting to hear back from them."

 

When I need to determine utilization, I just look at the switchport that is connected to the MX appliance or other router/firewall.  Once the switchport is selected, you can see the Historical Data for 2 hours, 1 day, 1 week, 30 days and the Usage reported in the Status section updates and seems much more reasonable that what is reported by Traffic Analytics.
