Leverage all the advantages of standards-based network management." Design and deploy world-class RMON/SNMP network management systems!" The RMON standard makes it possible to remotely monitor and troubleshoot segments of today's global enterprise networks, no matter how complex they are. This book translates the SNMP and RMON terminology into business terms so you can communicate with your network management product vendors. In addition, the book provides a close-up review of the RMON standards and walks you through the objects found in the RMON MIB modules. The author, David T. Perkins, has been a participant in the development of the RMON standards from its beginning. Perkins uses many diagrams and figures to illustrate the essential elements of the RMON standards and the key SNMP concepts required to use RMON. The book will assist you in mastering the concepts of Ethernet and Token Ring operation and learn how to leverage the RMON standards, either by writing your own code or by using vendor supplied tools." Helps you determine if RMON should be used in your network." Provides the benefits of using RMON." Shows how to place RMON probes in your network." Includes practical tips for gathering statistics, analyzing traffic, and identifying bottlenecks." Describes how RMON probes can be used to plan growth, allocate expenses, track resources, and enhance security." Detailed coverage of RMON2 and the high-capacity additions for high-speed networks." You'll discover proven techniques for building RMON-based systems that can be shared throughout a network management organization; learn how to use RMON data on a day-to-daybasis; and preview the IETF's latest work on network management. Whether you're a business decision-maker, network operator, software developer, or tester, RMON represents a powerful opportunity for competitive advantage.
