loss, traffic, bandwidth and utilization. It can also monitor each managed
node and interface via SNMP to report when a node reboots or an interface
goes down. The Performance Monitor is ideal for monitoring the bandwidth
utilization of routers and switches and providing online and historical
charts of your network performance.
Items the fee does not include:
MetroServ must be informed of all changes, additions or deletions of network hardware, servers, switches and routers. This is important in helping diagnose issues that may arise as new equipment is added to the network with respect to performance or errors that may be encountered while monitoring the network.
Management and monitoring charges include all Cisco routers, switches, firewalls and VPN hardware, emergency remote access, detailed router configuration documentation, detailed up to date Visio diagrams of the WAN, as well as a monthly meeting to discuss and review the performance statistics, reports, failures and any other issues the customer may have.
MetroServ offers a management and monitoring service that includes all hardware as part of the service. This eliminates any capital acquisition costs by the customer. The customer would pay a monthly fee to MetroServ for all of the LAN/WAN hardware as well as the monitoring and management.
