Bandwidth & Traffic Reporting



NetFlow export from the router normally takes 2 to 3 % of the total bandwidth


           

ManageEngine IT360 Central Server to Probe Communication:

The following is the rough figure of the bandwidth utilized between the ManageEngine IT360 Probe and ManageEngine IT360 Central server while monitoring the above set of resources.  The below captured metrics are based on the testing performed in the ManageEngine lab with the default poll interval configured for the devices and with the default number of parameters.  The below information is applicable to IT360 Enterprise Edition & IT360 MSP Edition.

0.296 kbs

Notes:
  • The above indicated bandwidth requirement would vary depending on the environment & based on the following parameters:
    • Number of resources monitored by the system.
    • Frequency of polling.
    • Number of parameters monitored for the resources.
  • If the functioning of ManageEngine IT360 is affected due to low bandwidth, bandwidth would need to be increased.
  • In case of addition of more monitored resources or decrease in polling interval in future, the bandwidth requirement would need to be reworked and could be higher.
  • CPU, Memory & Disk Utilization are monitored for Servers and monitors like CPU, Memory, Interface Rx/Tx Traffic/Utilization/Errors/Discards are associated to Network Devices (Switches, Routers, Printers) by default.
  • Netflow data will be stored only in the probe end and will not be transferred to the Central server.
