Help Network Metrics Threshold Configuration for Network Attributes

Threshold Configuration for Network Attributes

Add a network monitor and keep track of all the performance metrics of critical network devices such as routers, switches, and firewalls using SNMP and assist network teams to visualize, monitor, optimize and manage the network devices and interfaces.

Threshold and Availability Profile for a network device helps the alarms engine to decide if a specific resource has to be declared critical or down.

In addition to the Network Devices, you can also configure thresholds for: 

Threshold Configuration for Network Interfaces

  1. Log into your Site24x7 account
  2. Go to Network > Network Devices
  3. Click on the respective device name
  4. Navigate to the Interfaces tab in the device dashboard
  5. Click on the hamburger icon corresponding to the interface for which the threshold configuration has to be set
    Edit Threshold Profile
  6. Click Edit Threshold Profile
  7. Fill the following fields in the pop up. You can set the condition as Critical or Trouble based on which you'll receive alerts for these thresholds.
    • Ignore Alert: By default, this is set No. You can select 'Yes' if you wish to ignore the alerts
    • In Traffic: Get notified when the in traffic (in bps, Kbps, Mbps, Gbps, or Tbps) is <, <=, =, >, or >= the set threshold
    • Rx Utilization: Get notified when the receiving bandwidth utilization (in %) is <, <=, =, >, or >= the set threshold
    • Out Traffic: Get notified when the out traffic (in bps, Kbps, Mbps, Gbps, or Tbps) is <, <=, >, or >= the set threshold
    • Tx Utilization: Get notified when the transmitting bandwidth utilization (in %) is <, <=, =, >,or >= the set threshold
    • Error Rate: Get notified when the error rate (in %) is <, <=, =, >, or >= the set threshold
    • Discard Rate: Get notified when the discard rate (in %) is <, <=, =, >, or >= the set threshold
    • Mark the device as Trouble when the interface is Down/Trouble: By default, this is set No. You can select 'Yes' if you wish to change the device status as trouble

Bulk update of threshold configuration for Network Interfaces

  1. Navigate to the Interfaces tab in the device dashboard (following the steps 1-4, as above)
  2. Click on the Threshold Configuration button
  3. In the pop up click on the drop-down menu corresponding to Child Monitors
    Bulk edit interface threshold
  4. Select the desired interfaces for which you wish to bulk update the threshold
  5. Follow step 7 (as above) to fill the required fields
  6. Click Save

Threshold Configuration for Performance Counters

You can configure thresholds for both numeric and string performance counters.

  1. Log into your Site24x7 account
  2. Go to Network > Network Devices
  3. Click on the respective device name
  4. Navigate to the Performance Counters tab in the device dashboard
  5. Click on the edit icon corresponding to the performance counter for which the threshold configuration has to be set
