Hello David,

you can use the following for RMON

or

with RMON the devices collects SNMP MIB variables over time on itself and can send messages (alarms) when a specified condition (event) happens this is different from SNMP polling where an agent performs gets every x minutes.


Hope to help

Giuseppe

Router(config-if)# rmon collection history {controlEntry integer} [owner ownername] [buckets bucket-number] [interval seconds]

Enables an RMON history group of statistics on an interface.


rmon collection history is what I believe I have and naturally I guess either my IOS doesn't support it or I need another Sup engine.

4000 IOS 12.1 only supports mini-RMON

What sup model do you have?

Hello David,

the link I've provided is not specific of your platform.


of course what you see is what you can get on the device.


Hope to help

Supervisor Engine IV can run 12.2 codes so you can consider moving to a newer IOS but consult with Fluke to know what kind of config you need on the switch for your particular traffic/event monitoring needs
