Performance Data for Router Processors

You can gather the appropriate performance information for router processors through MIBs or through the command-line interface (CLI) via Telnet or rsh. We will look at both methods, as well as explain what the highlighted variables indicate, why they are useful, and how to manage the resulting factors. We will also identify some starting point thresholds to set and watch for when monitoring performance. But please note that the threshold settings defined in this section reflect only a starting point and nothing more. You must first understand your network traffic flows and network characteristics before making the appropriate threshold setting. Thresholds will constantly need tweaking and re-evaluation ...
