Traffic Analysis of Network Interfaces Using RMON

Distribution Official part of Checkmk
License GPLv2
Supported Agents SNMP
This check extracts data from the RMON statistics group of RMON enabled network interfaces. The data are described in the Remote MONitoring MIB. Several devices of various vendors are capable of supplying RMON data via SNMP, among them are some CISCO devices. It may be necessary to enable RMON for every single network interface you want to gather information for.

The check always returns the state OK. The main purpose of the check is to gather network traffic statistics as performance data.


The ID of the network interface within RMON (etherStatsIndex)


The discovery of services has to be specifically activated for this check (ruleset "Monitor RMON statistics"). By default, no services are discovered. If activated, one service is created for each network port for which RMON is activated.
