I will be monitoring a few switches through SNMP. I will be monitoring the bandwidth utilization, packets dropped, collisions, etc. Is there some kind of industry standard for these statistics? I've seen less than 70% utilization on a WAN is considered normal, but is this a standard?
Network Monitoring standards depends upon the critical of the Network and Company's Business. There are Network whose Uptime are critical upto 100% required but there are also Network required to be critcal between 9am to 6pm only ie., Office Hrs.
Consider your Company's Business Criteria, Understand the Critical of the Business, Understand the Usage Pattern of the Resources, Understand the Availability required for the Company, etc., then evaluate the Down-Time.
the previous two responses are both valid. When it comes to bandwidth, if you reach the threshold for your business, this should trigger an investigation about the bandwidth usage - i.e. is it due to more users? worm or virus traffic? Unwanted traffic such as inappropriate web browsing? Undesirable traffic - such as backups running during business hours, that can be scheduled for after hours? etc. And, I think you realize by now, there is no specific standard that we follow just guidelines that vary from busines to business.
