See if I can get a log file on Top Talker

Hi All,

 

This might be a long shot, but figure I post and see.

I have a VIP client that when they try to do certain things, it maxes out their 500Mb Internet connection.

I've enabled Top Talker on their Cisco ISR4331, and I know Top Talker is a real time application only.

Is there a way I can get the data to some kind of log file? like have the Cisco convert it to TopTalker.csv and tftp to pull it?

Or maybe use a program like PRTG or Solarwinds to reflect what Source/Destination IPs with the amount of bandwidth on each conversation?

Hello,

 

you could use an EEM applet such as the one below (which runs every 60 seconds):

 

event manager applet TOP_TALKER
event timer watchdog time 60
action 0.1 info type routername
action 1.0 cli command "enable"
action 2.0 cli command "show ip flow top-talkers"
action 3.0 file open fh flash0:top_talkers.csv w
action 4.0 file write fh "$_cli_result"
action 5.0 file close fh
action 6.0 cli command "copy flash0: tftp" pattern "Address"
action 7.0 cli command "w.x.y.z" pattern "filename"
action 8.0 cli command "$_info_routername-top_talkers_$_event_pub_sec"
action 9.0 syslog priority informational msg "Top Talker file written to TFTP server!"

                                            -  That is probably the best option

Thank you both for the information.

I'll try it out and see what happens!
