i absolutely agree... the stats are ont he routers, but for some reason, only the really expensive tools do it...
I al looking to move to IBM Provisio as it does it and I already have an enterprise license but it is a horrible product to get your head around
come on SW, make the move, add a CBQoS tab to the main NPM pagfe and let us alert on queues etc, and easily chart the current EF and AF band utilisations
