The average network bandwidth capacity of the specified network card is nearing the limit where it is saturating the network link. This value is taken over a specific number of background collections.
If this is happening regularly, look at:
- The NBT page of the Network drilldown to see if any users or other systems are copying an inordinate amount of data between systems.
- Moving network applications or shared files to another machine to balance the load.
- Upgrading the network subsystem to a faster technology.
- Adding an additional network card to the machine and configuring the system to utilize it.
Tip: If there are multiple network cards on the monitored Windows Server, you can right-click the gauge and select Select network card to choose which one you want to display.
Note: You can configure this alarm to ignore certain values.
