While collected historic data can tell you how your network will behave and what can be expected of it in terms of performance and reliability, real-time statistics are important for allowing you to perform detailed in-depth analysis.To better serve your users you also need real-time tables and graphs, which allow you to immediately respond to basic user requests.
Monitor one allows you to create and save Shooters (SNMP request definition) to show real-time tables, graphs or Meters.To view these statistics, you only need to execute the appropriate Shooter.
Define essential real-time graphs and tables, and keep them at hand for immediate assistance in case you need them. Before building a new shooter, always ask yourself what type of user question it can help you giving the answer.
Define Shooters that help you answer the most frequently asked questions. Use standards: for every SNMP enabled device, define - for example - at least definition files to retrieve the mib-2 system and ifEntry tables. For routers add also definition files to read the ipRouteEntry table and to graphically display the traffic/load per interface. For application servers create files to show CPU utilization, user sessions, disk usage, buffer usage etc.
