    Default My Kingdom...

    For this module's bandwidth monitor, welded into my procurve switches.

    Ugh... SOMEONE is sucking up all the gigabit to my server rack, and it's entirely too difficult to figure out who.

    And don't tell me spiceworks, useless!

    Yeah, but I have to "buy" prtg to get enough sensors for this.

    I also don't have a complete cable map and the 10 free sensors while should be more than sufficient, I don't know what ports to look at yet.

    I'm at the beginning of a very long, hard road this time. Still, prtg seems to be the best there is.

    Oddly enough Spiceworks will give me details when I click on specific ports. But I don't get a nice screen full of graphs of ALL ports, or even a range of ports, so I can get an eye on a subset of data at the same time. prtg "appears" to be able to do that.

    I dont like spiceworks, is very intrusive, and do not trust leaving AD credentials

    You don't have to integrate it with AD.

    And yes it is intrusive, but it does a TON of stuff, for "free". So you get what you pay for.

    I love zabbix. Monitor 3000+ devices with it.

    It works well with our procurve switches but it takes some configuration on your part to get setup. You can do just about anything with it.

    cacti-ez is a great way to go for low cost easy set up.

    Cacti would be my first choice, but it seems a little odd to monitor the health of a virtual cluster, from within the virtual cluster.

    simple MRTG monitoring by port.
    Then you can track what port the host is in.
    Then depending on the switch look at the arp table for that interface and see what devices listed on that port or just mirror the port to a monitoring unit and capture the traffic.

    That looks even better, simpler.

    Before I can do much more however I need to spend some time in that server room documenting where crap is plugged in. It's rather hard to monitor the link between switches when you don't know what port that link is attached to.
