Thread: Switch w/o SNMP

  1. #1

    Arrow Switch w/o SNMP

    Hello,

    I got gotten a new switch for my new rackspace as i'm expanding a little bigger.

    http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satel...VisitorWrapper

    I'm new to these networking hardwares and I realised this switch doesn't come with 'SNMP'.

    How do I moniter the bandwidth of each port without a SNMP-enabled switch?

    Please advise.. cheers!

    simple, you don't.

    You could optionally run something such as Cacti, MRTG, RTG, etc and place an snmp agent on each server.

    Where can I find/install this "snmp agent"?

    Will customers have root access on the servers that you are running as if so they could turn of SNMP. The only other option I can think of it to put a box above the switch to act as a transparent proxy/counter
