Network Monitoring: SNMP knows stuff

Some packet generator are more important than others and indeed while a packet is just a packet for us network people if the packets stop moving around the network the way they should it can be a great cause for alarm. I have a customer with such a packet generating devices and it chucks out a 600k udp multicast stream (a single UDP payload) every 5 seconds and if this screws up for any reason then the application is not happy and hundreds of users are very upset. If the packets stop for any length of time then a Severity 1 incident is raised and the customer needs an ass to kick.

And if you are working on different sites, each one with different IP addressing and DNS details, and maybe even different proxy settings or 802.1x. Mac OSX has a way for configuring multiple profiles for your Ethernet connection ( or Airport wireless).

What the letters on 802.1 Ethernet standards stand for

A recent post from a member of the IEEE standard finally tells us something useful instead of keeping everything a secret.
