BYOD: How to Monitor iPad HD Network Traffic

It’s no secret the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) revolution is in full swing, and you need to know how to monitor iPAD HD traffic on your corporate network. Long gone are the days where network administrators can police employees based solely on their desktop computer traffic. Cubicles are filled with 4 generations of iPhones, a variety of new e-readers, and now the new iPad HD / iPad 3.  BYOD network traffic analysis is of paramount importance.

Network Traffic Analysis through a Cisco ASA with NetFlow

Network Traffic Analysis through a Cisco ASA with NetFlow

Yes, you can use NetFlow to monitor traffic and bandwidth usage on an ASA.

One of the primary uses for NetFlow on a Cisco ASA is as a transport protocol for security events. But if you are using the right NetFlow Analysis tool, you can also analyze traffic using NetFlow sent from the Cisco ASA.

This is really important as I have seen many companies that have remote sites that are connected with a Cisco ASA, but had no devices behind the ASA’s that supported NetFlow. This meant that they couldn’t leverage NetFlow to analyze traffic.

Free SNMP graphing tool available in Flowalyzer v2.0!

Plixer International, your team of friendly neighborhood NetFlow specialists, has just released the newest version of Flowalyzer, our NetFlow and sFlow configuration tool. In addition to some performance and usability enhancements, version 2.0 adds a new tab to the Flowalyzer interface.

Flowalyzer version 2.0 introduces The Trender

The latest addition to the Flowalyzer tool is the Trender tab, which creates graphs for critical Windows resources, all done in real-time (a configurable update period that defaults to once every second). The Trender uses SNMP information gathered from your compliant gear to measure metrics from interface utilization to CPU or memory consumption. There is no limit to the number of metrics you can trend simultaneously (aside from the obvious limitation of screen real estate).

Cisco IP SLA Monitor or just IP SLA?

Cisco IP SLA Monitor or just IP SLA?

Cisco IOS IP Service Level Agreements (SLAs) help network administrators ensure that a high level of voice and data communication quality is maintained. Cisco IP SLA operations are a proactive method of reliably measuring network performance. IP SLA data can be retrieved and trended with an SNMP Performance trender to enable users to graph performance over time. Cisco IP SLA and SNMP should be in the tool belt of every network administrator. Pair these technologies with a NetFlow analyzer and you’ve got a great setup to help troubleshoot most network problems.

The purpose of this blog is to outline some of the IP SLA configuration changes in newer versions of Cisco’s IOS.

We’ve written a 4-part blog in the past that focuses on the following IP SLA operations:
