    Procurve network backbone saturation

    Hi,

    Can someone advise the best way to determine the level of saturation on links, particularly backbone links?

    Is simply viewing the figures on the device (telnet/web) sufficient? Does the basic (free) procurve manager software make it easier to monitor utilisation at peak periods?

    Thanks

    You can use something like MRTG to keep track of traffic.

    Theres also CACTI that people seem to be migrating from MRTG to use. I havent tried either but I know Ric is using MRTG. While your in the monitoring mood look into Nagios as well you can monitor alsorts of things with that. This I do have implemented.

    Cacti is a PHP frontend that basically automates all the boring stuff you'd normally setup manually with MRTG.
