Using Solarwinds to monitor 2611 Router and Cisco PIX 501
Posted on 2004-11-14
I recently purchased Solarwinds Engineers Edition to monitor our network. The two devices I need to monitor are a Cisco PIX 501 and a Cisco 2611 router. As with any other monitoring application, Solarwinds just asks for the IP address and the SNMP community string to monitor the interfaces on a device. Do I just need to enable SNMP on the Cisco devices and setup a community string? I think there is more to it but I need someone to break it down for me. I have tried researching this but I still don't understand how to do it.
