Re: [K12OSN] one year performance graphs and statistics for two server setups we use

Cacti already monitor SNMP. i was looking for the exact SNMP strings you might think help me monitor router's bottle-necks , NIC's IO buttle-necks, cpu wait for IO, squid wait for...
(actually, i monitor some hardware with SNMP. but i did not include it in the report.)

thanks :-)

i picked up two schools and extracted some graphs (generated by Cacti)
from the last year,
showing both server's setups.
i also have sar statistics that are more fine if anyone cares to go through.
(it 10MB gz data each) and (i use ksar to view it. great tool btw)


what i always like to know about the servers is how much the cpu waits for IO
or the NICs for buffers to fill ? and if the proxy needs more memory
and does it get
the web content fast enough... ? is samba's file sharing is optimized ?

if any of you have any ideas how to monitor those bottle-necks please
enlighten me :-)
i love to get more quality stats next year.

It might be overkill for this, but OpenNMS (http://www.opennms.org) will monitor the things that snmp reports - and your router and switches as well if they support snmp.  They have a yum repository that makes it fairly easy to install now.
