monitor Layer 3 network devices RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am working on a project and want to find out how to monitor Layer 3 network devices with the following requirements:

    1) Network latency between network devices/nodes with no more than 85ms, 95% of the time

    2) Throughput or Bandwidth Utilization between network devices/nodes such as monitor uploading or downloading use

    3) Packet loss is measured by averaging sample measurements

     


    Thank you, Kevin

    Hi,

     

    If the device supports SNMP, I think you can try SNMP monitoring. To check if the device supports SNMP or not, please refer to the following method:
