Router Monitoring Test


Sub section menu:

The Monitoring tests are found in the MONITORING TAB in the MCS main menu, as shown on the right.

To add a new ROUTER TEST click the ADD TASK LINK.

Add Monitoring Task

The Router monitor test allows you to determine network activity of a SNMP enabled device. The test gets RFC1213 global statistics from the device.

The options here are mostly straightforward. Some are explained below.

READ ONLY SNMP COMMUNITY NAME: The "SNMP Community name" is like a user id or password that allows access to a router's or other device's statistics. If the community name is correct, the device responds with the requested information.

CONSOLIDATE: As it's possible to perform a ping every few seconds it's usually necessary to consolidate the data for the database. This means an average of all results over a certain time frame are taken and added to the database as one entry.

Custom Thresholds

This section is only used if the user wishes to alter the default thresholds.

The default settings are shown in brackets for each parameter.

This will not affect the global thresholds for other tests, they will be unique values for this test.

Click ADD ROUTER TASK to save changes.
