Monitor Networks

Site24x7 provides a comprehensive network monitoring tool to ensure the health and performance of your network devices and interfaces. Automatically discover your devices such as routers, switches (including switch stacks), firewalls and continuously monitor critical metrics such as CPU, memory utilization, buffer hit stats, and more. This helps network admins monitor, visualize, optimize and manage the network devices and their respective interfaces. 

Synopsis

Prerequisites

Site24x7 Network Monitoring requires an On-Premise Poller to be installed in the network that is monitored. Both Windows and Linux flavours are supported. 

System Requirements

Number of devices/interfaces Processor RAM Hard disk
Upto 100 devices/1000 interfaces 4 processors 8GB 60GB or higher       
100-500 devices/1000 to 2500 interfaces        8 processors       16GB     
  • We support a maximum of 500 devices per poller. To add more devices, you can install multiple On-Premise Pollers in the same account.
  • The memory capacity mentioned above does not include the memory used by OS, which should account for another 4 GB
  • Linux users: In order to use the network monitoring feature using On-Premise Poller, Linux users must start the On-Premise Poller as a root user.

Supported Device Types

  • Printers
  • UPS
  • Storage and any device with SNMP support

Supported SNMP Versions

Site24x7's Network Monitoring uses SNMP. SNMP mode is used to communicate with the remote devices and collect performance metrics. All the versions such as SNMP v1, SNMP v2, and SNMP v3 are supported.

Monitoring the Network

Monitor your network with the devices and interfaces in it, by adding them.

Multiple Credential Support

Network discovery is simplified with multiple credential support. You can use multiple credentials at once in a network discovery and also share common credentials across devices.

Custom SNMP Monitoring

Monitor any device from any vendor using our custom SNMP monitoring. Use device templates to add any device and monitor any metric using custom performance counters. Tabular OIDs can also be monitored using tabular performance counters.

SNMP Trap Processing

Stay on top your network and hardware issues, and take quick corrective actions by processing SNMP traps received from your network devices. Site24x7 instantly processes these traps and notifies you of the anomalies. 

Performance Metrics

You can view the device performance snapshot under monitor details page. Inside the Site24x7 web client's home page, click on the respective network device to access the monitor details page.

Setting Thresholds for Network Attributes

Threshold and Availability Profile for a network device helps you decide if a specific resource has to be declared UP, TROUBLE, or DOWN. Thresholds can also be configured for child attributes like network interfaces and performance counters.

Visualizing Network Monitoring

Obtain visual insights on your network performance using Layer 2 maps, topology maps, health dahsboards, and NOC view.

Analyzing Network Traffic

Obtain complete visibility into your network traffic and bandwidth performance in real time. Identify traffic peaks, top applications, and conversations using different flow technologies so that you can analyze for what and by whom your bandwidth is being used. Site24x7 supports differnt flow technologies like NetFlow, JFlow, sFlow, IPFIX, NetStream, and AppFlow along with support for different vendors in the market.

Cisco IPSLA-based VoIP Monitoring

Assess the quality of VoIP call services through out the call path using Cisco Internet Protocol Service Level Agreement (IPSLA). Analyzing the network and the call transmission across the call path will help to troubleshoot and rectify issues.

Reports

Gather performance data of resources monitored and generate numerous reports. The following are the different types of reports that are available for Network Devices.
