Traffic Load/Bandwidth on 2500 Series Router

Unanswered Question

Hi Everyone. I have an older 2500 Series router that I use as a front end for a WAN link. I need to be able to monitor the traffic type, bandwidth usage on it and also I'd like to be able to graph bandwidth usage by destination address of all traffic crossing it... does anyone know of a tool that will assist me with this process? Can it be done through MRTG? If so, which method would you use to accomplish it?


All answers appreciated... thanks!

Hi,


you are asking too many things to an old tired 2500. What you want is called netflow and is supported on a bit more modern routers that have more memory to accommodate the needed IOS.


The one you have would be able to send SNMP traffic data to mrtg and that's it.


Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!

Hi,


Be reassured that currently your 2500 is not handling 94 Mbps of traffic, as it is simply unable to do that :) The radio has a serial interface at which speed ?


However, I think said a 2801 or even a 1841 would do the job perfecly.
