Unanswered Question
Jun 1st, 2009

What is the best way to look at a router and/or switch to determine its health other than just reviewing the logs?

I have this problem too.

I should have added that I have 50 Switches and Routers to monitor. With that in mind what would be the best way?

Using show proc, show mem, show interface what would be the threshold between having a problem and not having one?

You need to baseline your setup.

For some of my boxes 80% CPU load is pretty normal as they are doing heavy duty tasks.

However if I see it spiking to 85-90% I would know some recent changes have upset the box.
