I'm working with a no-kidding data scientist to analyze router metrics in my organization.
Pulling Interface Traffic from routers. At this point we're experimenting with Interface polling at the default 9 minutes and also 15, 30 minutes.
Question: my customer is asking...
Does this represent a) average of router-internal records over the pulling period, b) some point-in-time reading, or other?
Can anyone offer guidance on what these values represent? In general we're polling from Cisco 7000 series routers.
Thanks in advance for any responses.
