sFlow is the standard for monitoring high-speed switched and routed
networks. sFlow technology is built into network equipment and gives
complete visibility into network activity, enabling effective management and
control of network resources. The PowerConnect M6220, M6348, M8024,
and M8024-k switches support sFlow version 5.
For information about configuring managing sFlow settings, see "Monitoring
Switch Traffic" on page 399.
SNMP Alarms and Trap Logs
The system logs events with severity codes and timestamps. The events are
sent as SNMP traps to a trap recipient list.
For information about configuring SNMP traps and alarms, see "Configuring
SNMP" on page 327.
CDP Interoperability through ISDP
Industry Standard Discovery Protocol (ISDP) allows the PowerConnect
switch to interoperate with Cisco devices running the Cisco Discovery
Protocol (CDP). ISDP is a proprietary Layer 2 network protocol which inter-
operates with Cisco network equipment and is used to share information
between neighboring devices (routers, bridges, access servers, and switches).
For information about configuring ISDP settings, see "Discovering Network
Devices" on page 663.
Remote Monitoring (RMON)
RMON is a standard Management Information Base (MIB) that defines
current and historical MAC-layer statistics and control objects, allowing real-
time information to be captured across the entire network.
For information about configuring managing RMON settings, see
"Monitoring Switch Traffic" on page 399.
