Viewing averaged metrics for your network

With the PTAP At-A-Glance report, you can see averaged metrics for your entire network. Data used for this report is generated in 15-minute intervals and the most-recent/last-collected sample is used.

To view an At-A-Glance report:

  1. Click Reports, click Network Reports, then click Network Performance (PTAP).

    Control Center opens a separate window for CenturyLink PTAP.
  1. In the At-A-Glance box on the dashboard (above the map), use the lists to choose the information for your report:

    1. From the Device Metrics list, select the device you want to see a report about. 

    2. From the Collection Sample list, the default is  FiveMinute, which shows the metric sample collected in the last five minutes. 
  1. Click Go.

    PTAP runs the report and displays your results. Gauges showing the average for those metrics appear in a pop-up window. Each gauge shows the average for your company's network.

    The individual red gauge needles show the average for that specific metric across your whole company.

    The abbreviations, LWM = low water mark; HWM = high water mark, are below each gauge and indicate the lowest (and highest) value for each metric—across your whole enterprise for the sample. The LWM/HWM values are helpful for quickly determining whether a device/circuit is not performing optimally.
