What sensor to use on cisco catalyst 3750



We are running a Catalyst 3750 for our network in star formation. We also have voip running and have a problem with brake-up on voice calls. After resetting the switch the problem the problem goes away for a while. What sensor can i use to monitor the switch to make sure it can handle the trafic. I at present make use of SNMP Trafic. This does not tel me if the switch is running at ful capasity?

Ron an auto discovery on the switch. That should add a CPU and RAM usagesensor to the switch.

Have you thought about adding a QoS sensor


It might help you to find the bottleneck
