monitoring hp procurve switches



Hi - I am trying to use PRTG to monitor my hp switches but would like to drill down into more detail, i.e. what types of traffic is flowing over each port? is this possible? At the moment I have the simple RMON sensors and traffic sensors for each port but this doesn't really provide me with application layer detail?

We are considering whether to purchase prtg for my organisation but this could be the deciding point whether we go for it or not ?

As a senario, we have a user that has complained about slow network access but I would like to be able to look at the users port on prtg and work out what traffic has been flowing over their port?

Many thanks,

application hp switch-port

Hi gbirdee

I also use HP switches. What model do you have? It may be possible to use sflow? We also have Cisco ASA's and use netflow sensors. Thats more than enough to check which user uses the most traffic and with what.
