Ciscoworks to determine high bandwith on switchport

Unanswered Question
Sep 28th, 2007

Can you monitor switchports and the utilization of the port in Ciscoworks?

We have a network congestion problem originating from a switch with a couple of hundred ports on it.

Can you monitor the ports and show % utilization on each port to determin the culprit?

I have this problem too.

Not currently possible to monitor for bw util unattended with CW LMS. But there's an add-on coming for LMS 3.0, though it's not clear it's "free" or for-a-fee:

For this particular purpose, watching bw util (regardless of by % or bits) is usually just the first step. After identifying the offending port(s), you'd probably want to find out what traffic on the port(s) was the culprit. There're a variety of approaches to this, from sniffer to NetFlow/RMON2 probes/NAM.
