    Transmit/Receive Bandwidth Question

    timshee

      I have Solarwinds NPM monitoring approximately 75 Cisco switches.  The devices are at different sites with different bandwidths (some are 2Mbps, some 3Mbps, some 768Kbps).  I have NPM set up with the transmit and receive bandwidth identical...that is to say, for a site that has a 2Mbps circuit the transmit and receive bandwidth are both set to 2Mbps.  Also, at sites with more than one switch the transmit and receive bandwidth are both set to the speed of the port it is connected to on the primary switch (ex: fa0/1 = 100Mbps). Is this setup according to best practices?  I do not get many bandwith utilization errors.
