I am trying to design a monthly baseline strategy for our 18 3560 switches. We would like to monitor traffic, config changes, dropped packets. Does anyone have any recommendation of the best way to achieve this would be?
thank you for any help you can offer.
As glen said i would say solarwinds is one of the best tool for monitoring all what you have listed. It also have lot of other hepful tools which can be used.
MRTG is a free tool and also can be used for monitoring.
Hope this helps.
