I need to find out a way to monitor speeds from our main switch to other switches throughout the building. Basically from our Main switch to each closet. Anyone know of a good way or program? Price is not an option on this. I am open to all suggesstions.
The only app I know of that will measure speed (not utilization or volume) is Bandwidth Gauages from Solarwinds Network Engineers Toolset. I've attached a screenshot. Is this what you are looking for? Are you looking for real-time or long-term trending?
I stand corrected, Solarwinds Network Performance Monitor also shows bps for a link. This app would be used for long term trending. I'm sure there are other apps like MRTG that can also track this.
Hey there...I downloaded that. Where is the bandwidth gauge on there? I am looking but I cant see where it is on there....
Awesome, i found it...Now i added the server i want on the gauge, but its wanting credentials.. Can you tell me what i should put? It says that this server doesnt respond with the surrent snmp credentials...
I appreciate you helping me on this.
i just enabled traffic on my asa to allow snmp traffic to this server. Its a windows server 2003. Can you tell me how to enable it?
Here's a couple of links-
Install SNMP on the server
Let me know when this is done and we'll drive on. You don't need to configure traps, just the community.
cool! i got it and did my first test on the gauge..i like this tool set suite. Any other cool features on this?
Netflow, the MIB tools, and the Subnet Calculator are great. Their Network Performance Monitor product is sweet too. They have a demo on their website, check it out.
