Network Performance

Hi are there any way I can get network performance of our network enterprise and performance of each switch like getting bandwith utilization or traffik aside from using PCM+? Are there any application I can use to generate report for network performance of my procurve switches or are there cli commands I can also use to check traffik. Thanks!

Re: Network Performance

For basic traffic information, you can use MRTG (free but not so easy to setup) or PRTG (Windows based but a commercial product).

Through the CLI you can use the 'show interface' command to give you basic counters. The web interface will also give you the same and near-instantaneous utilization graphs for each port.

For more in-depth traffic monitoring you could look at an sFlow collector like InMon Traffic Sentinel.

hi!

Yes...PRTG or MRTG will help you a lot. If you are looking for more serious solutions, use SNAPPiMON. That is wonderfull. We are using it for more than 3 years.

Ps: Thanks for the points, if any.

Take a look at Cacti (http://cacti.net/). It's not hard to set up (PHP+MySQL+SNMP). All you need is SNMP configured on the switches and you can get amazing graphs and reports. Uses RRDTOOL. And best of all it's free!
