We have a customer who currently wants to be able to monitor their switches. We already monitor them through solarwinds as their IT supplier. They already have MRTG running for monitoring their 2 x 100 Mbps LES circuits on the 2621 XMs
We are suggesting solarwinds as one of the options, but the cost may an issue, they have the following;
2 x 3550-48-EMI
1 x 3550-12G-EMI
4 x 3500XL (48 ports)
2 x 2621 XM routers
so 316 ports to monitor !
*Be able to set users thresholds on port utilisation and notify via email if breached.
*has a dashboard layout if problems need to be investigated.
*is VERY simple to use!
*has syslog function
*can be used by multiple users, up to 4 it support staff.
*has some form of graphing utilising to look at stats
*has some ability to measure QoS as being used by Avaya phone system.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
I always rate helpful posts.
Best Regards, Adrian.
