We have a situation where a network behind a firewall needs intensive monitoring. there is a firewall behind the firewall which we do not control which needs access to the internet through our firewall.
The problem is that we need to know its status every one seconds and collect that data. So ideally, it would be an orion server inside that network but able to collect data every one seconds.. so far, the fastest we can set orion I think is 10 seconds.
Effectively, I need to ping several devices and a google dns and collect that data.
Any idea how to collect at this frequency?
We are running orion but falling short because the episodes are lasting less than 10 seconds. So we have no method to "prove" our network is not at fault..
for such short polling frequencies, you could use the engineers toolset, it is capable of live monitoring.
Orion itself is not capable of a polling frequency less than 10 seconds.
could you elaborate a bit on what you are trying to see?
Credit card processing is done down a vpn tunnel. While I cant see the processor on the far end I can see the device (POS) wanting the credit, the device (firewall) sending the credit and I can see the internet. If those three things are present then in theory "my" network is doing its job.
Im downloading the toolset demo.
NetPath and QoE should do the job over time, but Enhanced Ping from the Toolset will give you real time stats at the rate you set. Be careful with the tool set; it can be a tool of good or evil. It's easy to inadvertently create a DOS using those tools if you're not completely familiar with their setup and the size of the pipe and the capabilities of the devices you'll monitor.
