Monitoring network chassis with SNMP
IPHost Network Monitor allows you to test and monitor performance parameters of network chassis. You can select what variable to monitor using built-in MIB browser that provides you with all variables supported by chassis, their current values and descriptions taken from MIBs.
Network chassis in the first hand is a mounting device, combining network devices, protecting them from environment and allowing to control network communication between installed network devices. It allows to optimize traffic management, to prevent network saturation, to avoid unnecessary traffic forwarding.
Network chassis are akin to network bridges; they allow smarter and faster traffic management; whereas bridged interfaces become a single entity, chassis just allows managing packets without sending them outside the device.
Network chassis also improve overall security, reducing traffic across several networks traveling over several physical networks.
Network chassis monitoring use cases
- health checks of the installed components
- traffic stats and accounting, and speed control
