I am looking at several Network monitoring solutions ( Zabbix, Zenoss, Cacti and such, and most can use SNMP to report.
Currently the Cisco switches are not configured for reporting, what do I need to do to configure them for Network monitoring software to get the ability to monitor them? I am looking for both status, and bandwidth monitoring capability.
I am looking to configure two 1841's, a ASA 5500, a 1721, a 3750, three 3560's, and six 2950's.
I would prefer to do this without taking them down, and if they need to come down, I would have to do it on a weekend or late night.
