RMON Top Talkers

Unanswered Question
Feb 1st, 2007

I would like to try setting up rmon on our cisco 3560 switches and send the data to ntop. I am looking primarily for top talkers data. Does anyone know how to config the cisco to do this? Possibly have a sample config? I have read about rmon, but can't find anything good about setting it up for top talkers.

I have this problem too.

Top Talkers are part of RMON II and unfortunately switches alone will not give you RMON II stats.

Switches can only support mini-RMON which can only give you port stats.

You might want to look at a Network Analysis Module (NAM). NAM can give you VoIP info via RMON/RMON2 stats. More on NAMs can be found at:
