Hi, I am planning to setup the following infra:
02 x Cat4507 switch, each with 02 x Supervisor Engine IV, as core switches
1 at each building
10 x Cat2960 switch, each with 02 x uplink cables, to each of the core switch, 5 per building, as edge switch.
I would like to know can the following be achieved:
Can I register all the network devices (PC, printer) to the core switch, and send out alarm (SNMP packets) when one of the following occur: A non-registered device is plugged into the network; a registered device is disconnected from the network
Send out alarm when bandwidth utilization hit a certain level (between edge switch uplink and core switch, or between end point network device and edge switch network port)
As for link redundancy, I should be using Spanning Tree?
