In Netmon we have created dashboards for cisco and other specific (the most popular and common) manufacturers so that when a device is added, it automatically polls “dashboard” or preset trackers. Additional trackers can be added to the dashboard using SNMP walk.
Netmon utilizes several industry standard technologies including PING / ICMP, SNMP, NetFlow that come into play when talking about cisco devices (you will have to have SNMP enabled on the cisco device before you can add the device into netmon).
We will take a look at:
• Cisco Firewalls
• Cisco Routers
• Cisco Switches
• Cisco APs
The dashboards will look very similar for the family of cisco devices with a few notable differences that we will point out.
When adding a new device in Netmon you will need to enter the device’s information such as IP address and SNMP configurations, polling interval, etc.
