    Welcome to the Microsoft Q&A Platform. Thank you for reaching out & I hope you are doing well.

    I understand that you would like to know the top talkers in an ExpressRoute Circuit Connection.

    Please note that ExpressRoute is a service used to provide direct connectivity using BGP, and as such, it only logs metrics related to the configuration/infrastructure relating to ExpressRoute.

    Now, in your scenario, you should consider using a service that provides Traffic Analytics for the entire VNet(s).

    You must enable NSG Flow Logs and visualize it using Traffic Analytics

    Your specific use case is documented here : Traffic Distribution across Top IPs
