Remote monitoring of utilization



I am looking for a too/method to quickly determine the utilization by user at the remote centers.  All centers have Cisco routers and switches.

If you want utilization by user, enable netflow on the router using the interface "ip route-cache flow" command:
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/iosswrel/ps5207/products_command_reference_chapter09186a00801a7ee7.html#wp1029889

You don't necessarily have to export the data, you can just use show commands to see the information.

If you want total utilization, not by user, you can use free MRTG http://www.mrtg.org
or get a 30-day eval of SolarWinds http://www.solarwinds.net

If you want to export the flow data, you can use freeware ntop
http://www.ntop.org/ntop.html

Alternatives include distributed Sniffer, something like LanHound http://www.ebf.net/products/lanhound/lanhound.htm
comes with distributed agents at a very reasonable cost

Are you still working on this? Do you need more information? More details from any specific product?

I used the ip route-cache flow but I did not see utilization on the screen.
