DFM Alerts - High Utilization

Unanswered Question
Dec 5th, 2008

I occasionally get High Utilization alerts, and was wondering if there was a way within LMS to actually look the exact traffic that is causing these high utilization alerts? I looked that the packet capture funtion in device center, but it only allows me to specify ports, ip address, etc., not specific physical interfaces. These alerts are usually in another building, so I don't always have the time to go over there and possibly mirror the port and do a packet capture. Any other ideas out there?


I have this problem too.

Since this traffic is passing through the devices, you will need a remote network probe or sniffer. Something like the Network Analysis Module or ISR routers or 6500 switches would work, as would any distributed sniffer or RMON switch probe. None of these are included with LMS.
