Description

IT organizations around the globe strive to deliver superior business value by helping their organizations increase productivity, deliver services faster and remain flexible by incorporating the latest technology innovations. This creates multifold challenges in network management. Network admins need to be more proactive and agile in monitoring network performance. However, this is easier said than done.

Introducing Monsoon, an easy-to-use, and open-source network monitoring exporter. It monitors network devices such as routers and switches that are using the SONiC Network Operating System, which is a free to download piece of OS software. Monsoon continuously monitors the network and provides an in-depth visibility and control over it. In case of a fault, you can easily drill down to the root cause and eliminate it before operations are affected.

  • Port / interface monitoring
    • Interface traffic levels (bytes & packets per second)
