Network bandwidth usage by Ignition Gateway

Hello All,

I was wondering if there is an easy way to trend how many bytes are being polled every polling cycle across all devices?

We have different poll rates for different tag groups and at some point of time all will be polled at the same time. Trending this will help.

I know we can use wireshark but I'd rather not install a new software on the server when Gateway already should know.

Additionally, in Systems>Tags would be nice to see "Bytes" column along with Tag Count.

On a side note one reason I am interested in it is because S7-1200 Siemens PLC has a limit on network packet size.

That's actually pretty complicated. But not an unreasonable thing to want. Consider making a feature request. (And install wireshark in the meantime.)
