We have Dell 33xx 34xx 60xx series switches. Since we've been experiencing some packet loss issues we'd like to somehow pinpoint the problem, our latest assumption is that we're having issues due to high CPU utilization on the switches but we lack the data to back this up. Dell said they don't have an SNMP OID to support cpu/memory data collection - but I can't believe that a managed switch would lack that sort of data mining capabilities.
Granted, we know that Cisco switches are the way to go - we just purchased these because of their price point.
So is there any way to centrally monitor/collect CPU and memory statistics from Dell PowerConnect switches?
