RMON for stats collection

Hi there,

I've been tasked with setting up nbar on our network to garner ip protocol/user top talker stats on a collector "eHealth". I've been told that RMON needs to be enabled on our Routers to be able to get these stats.

Is there a basic RMON configuration or do I have to specify snmp mibs etc.?

Many thanks,

Paul

Re: RMON for stats collection

Most routers do not support RMON, just a few older ones support mini RMON, but this won't get your top talkers info, just basic stats.

Do you have a NAM or switches that you can configure with snmp/rmon? You can add snmp to you switches and poll various MIB's to collect data.

With a NAM (network analysis module) you can get the detail information you want though.

Hi David,

thanks for your informative reply.

1. Is a NAM a piece of hardware that needs to be installed?

Basically we want to be able to gather protocol and user stats from each Router so that we can put these in a pie chart and see which protocol or user is generating the most traffic as a percentage.

2. Is this not possible with RMON, if not what's the alternative?

Thanks,

Paul
