Hi

I would like to collect stats from the 6 PowerConnect 3324s we have stacked in our network to visualise which ports are creating the most data.

I have access to the in built web managment but can't get history for all ports in one location.

Not familier with SNMP so if this is involved in your solution please give me a blow by blow of what I need to download/install

Thanks for any help.

Snmp should be fairly simple. Get a tool to monitor like PRTG or spiceworks

The default community string is normally 'public' (which most tools try by default). Whith that you should be able to read out the stats.

Some more monitoring tools: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/System_Utilities/Q_26748566.html?cid=748#a34841205
