FrameFlow - SNMP Monitoring
Monitor Your Switches, Routers and Other SNMP Devices
FrameFlow includes an SNMP monitor that can watch your switches, routers and other SNMP-enabled devices. Just add a new SNMP Uptime event monitor and point it to your SNMP devices. It will start monitoring them on the schedule you choose, will report on their uptime and will alert you about power downs and restarts.
If a switch or router goes down, the complaints start pouring in right away. FrameFlow's SNMP event monitor has an option to warn you if any of your SNMP devices stop responding to requests for any reason.
More SNMP Monitoring
You can also use FrameFlow's SNMP Bandwidth event monitor to record traffic levels on individual interfaces. You can use the SNMP Process event monitor and SNMP Uptime event monitors to keep track of detailed system performance and availability. These event monitors rely on standard SNMP values supported by all units and they hide all of the ugly details about SNMP so you can get the monitoring data you need without any hassles.
Roll Up Your Sleeves
For advanced monitoring, FrameFlow includes a generic SNMP event monitor that will let you watch any SNMP value using its numeric OID or symbolic name. It works great in combination with our free SNMP Browser, a graphical tool that lets you explore the SNMP values supported by your devices. Both the event monitor and our browser are extensible using standard SNMP MIB files. Just download them and drop them in the MIBs subfolder.
SNMP Trap Monitoring
Lastly, you can use FrameFlow's SNMP Trap event monitor to catch traps from your networking gear. By rolling out a combination of SNMP polling and trap management you'll always have direct insight into networking operations.
