One nice feature I'd like to see is the ability to view all the interface graphs of a particular node on one page, creating an overview of that node's interface traffic. I know that this can be done with Custom HTML, but when you have multiple routers with +300 interfaces on it, no one has the time to add each one of these custom HTML resources to a single (or multiple) pages.
The ablility to copy the HTML into a Custom HTML resource was broken in 9.0, but fixed in 9.1.
There's one minor issue, which we are addressing in the first SP for 9.1 though.
When you copy the html out, you have something like:
<img src="charts.aspx?Whole bunch of parameters">
You need to change that to:
<img src=/Orion/Netperfmon/Charts.aspx?Whole bunch of parameters">.
Without adding the "/Orion/Netpermon/" part, it won't work. The SP will be adding this so it's easier for users to copy out...
I understand the basic concept of being able to copy the URL for a particular chart, but is there a way for NPM (v9.1 SP4) to have a link to a custom page that shows the Min/Max/Avg bps for particular interfaces of interest? I want to be able to create a page that shows all these individual charts in one page, perhaps with the ability to put a custom name on it so non-tech management could understand what they're looking at.
Can you clarify what kind of assistance you're looking for? Are you having trouble establishing a link to your custom page? Or is it the development of the custom page you're having trouble with?
I've created a custom page showing the Min/Max/Avg bps (receive/transmit) of each interface of one of our VMWARE ESX servers. However, we're using 4 interfaces on each server connected to a Cisco switch without port channeling. Rather than a chart for each interface, I'd rather have a chart showing the overall bandwidth Min/Max/Avg (receive/transmit) for each ESX server. I have found "VM Network Traffic" chart fairly informative, but it lacks granularity (shows data once per hour, and no max/min bars).
Any ideas? I've thought about possibly a UnDP custom poller that polls each interface, then combines them somehow. If I can't specifically get this info from the ESX servers, I suppose I could try getting it from the connected Cisco switches. Either way, I'd like to plot a "port-channel-like" graph without having to reconfigure the server-to-switch connection to be a port-channel.
Thanks in advance for your ideas!
Can someone illustrate how exactly to do this? I would like to create a single Min/Max/Avg percent utilization graph of my ISP links. And perhaps one that can add up the total capacity of those links and chart one line combining the 5 links together. (IE each is an OC-12 so recv/xmit would be 622 X 5) This would give me a nice total overview of how my ISP links are working in a single graph.
