hi all pros!
I'm not a network engineering. All I'm doing now is based on my understanding and experiences.
I'm about move to another servers collocation, and I will need to come up with a network design.
So far, here is what I thought
(MY_ISP CABLE, ip range: 123.456.789.0 ~ 100) ---> a 3COM 4250T managed switch ---> 2 regular router (linksys and netgear) with 2 different public IPs ---> internal network of servers.
the goal is that i will want to monitor bandwidth/traffic from each IP, and my current netgear/linksys do not have SNMP enabled for any kind of monitoring software.
So, i thought the managed switch will be best suitable?
is the config above making sense with respect with what I wanna do? if the switch comes with SNMP/quality of service, etc , i should be able to look at traffic at each IP right?
thanks so much
