With the wealth of features and capabilities in switches nowadays, configuring comprehensive monitoring is not a trivial – or quick – task. Unless you’re using LogicMonitor. If you are, configuring comprehensive monitoring for Cisco switches consists of entering the hostname. That’s it.
LogicMonitor will then automatically detect and monitor:
- all active interfaces
- all BGP sessions
- all CPUs, Memory Pools, temperature sensors
- all modules and cards, and their respective CPU and memory.
- all QoS policies
- all IP SLA profiles
- PoE, VoIP specific features
- redundant supervisor module and power supply module status
- and more
all with no effort on your part, and all kept up to date automatically.
Just a few of the critical Cisco switch metrics we monitor:
Cisco Interface Traffic
A fundamental thing for every monitoring system, yet LogicMonitor even does this better. Automatically adjusting on a per interface level whether 64 or 32 bit counters are supported; tracking bps, packets per second, and discards, errors and queuing, and allowing the trending of data from the last few minutes to a year ago.
Cisco Switch temperature sensors
Switches need good airflow to prolong their life and perform well. Today’s Cisco switches can easily have over 40 individual sensors – all of which should be monitored. Tedious to set up – unless you use LogicMonitor.
Cisco IP SLA Monitoring
LogicMonitor will automatically detect, monitor and alert on any IP SLA profile in your network, enable accurate measurement of jitter, loss and latency for different protocols – ensuring you deliver the SLA’s your users expect.
Cisco Memory Pool Monitoring
LogicMonitor will automatically detect, monitor and alert on all the memory pools on all the switches in your network. LogicMonitor’s powerful alerting system goes beyond simple free memory, but alerts based on relative percentage sizes and size of the largest free blocks, as well.
