Packet Loss Monitoring

Packet loss can turn a good day into a bad one. Every Network Engineer will have a story about losing an evening to troubleshooting packet loss. It’s no fun trying to log into switches across the network and looking at counters until you can find the link responsible. Then having to troubleshoot in hope of identifying the issue: was it a bad crimp, dying SFP module or a hardware failure? Attempting to do this using only port counters or user feedback can be a nightmare. 

Here at Opsview, we understand how difficult packet loss monitoring can be. Every single Interface check in Opsview Monitor comes with counters for packet loss that can be configured to send alerts when a set level of error is detected. Alerts can be delivered to the relevant team within your business through a series of different notification methods. After adding a device, this can all be configured within a matter of seconds, saving you from having to discover it for yourself. 

Opsview can:

  • Accurately track any packet error counters for a network device, letting you identify problems instantly
  • Alert using a variety of methods, helping to make sure that you are fully aware of any issues that have occurred
  • Automatically discover any network device on a given segment, allowing you to get everything monitored as quickly as possible
