Cisco Switch - Interface errors



Is there an easier way to capture CRC/Interface errors on a Cisco switch besides enabling RMON? I currently have NMIS running side by side and they are able to capture this information without additional configurations on the switch.

You can use the SNMP Traffic Sensor and mark the Errors In & Out option in the settings of the sensor. If you want to apply this setting to multiple sensors at once, you can use the Multi-Edit Feature.

Best regards
