I was wondering if cisco provides any software for free download to undertake basic monitoring of Cisco router interfaces for keeping a tab on my WAN links (when they go up or down) and can give me an average view of bandwidth available across them for SLA purposes.
Am I asking for too much? How do you guys take care of this? I would rather live with something that utilises SNMP traps than configure netflows. Aren't SNMP traps better than netflows, performance wise?
My routers are 1800 and 2800 series and running a bandwidth of 100 mbps between them. I have admin control on all these.
Re: Monitoring interfaces for bandwidth availability?
I deployed Cacti and it does the job of bandwidth monitoring pretty well. What I was wondering was, is there something which can also tell me, (on an average) how much percentage/actuals have been allocated to me by the ISP at a given point in time?
A tool that can be set to send across a packet burst and come back to me with the total bandwidth being made available to me by the service provider?
