SNMP - monitoring customer usage for ISP

SNMP - monitoring customer usage for ISP

Hi Everyone,

I have a few questions which some of you might be able help...

I have a case scenario where I have to moniror customer usage for an ISP, this ISP
provides a SLA which limits users to a certain amount of download traffic per month.

Using SNMP, which is the best way to monitor users monthly usage?
Can I also track a routers overall uptime percentage over a month?
Can I also track the numbers of customers connected to the internet at one time?
Also can I track each individual interface if they are up or down?

Thanks to all.


RE: SNMP - monitoring customer usage for ISP

Yes to all, depending on your setup.  Something as simple as RRDTool (try NMIS or Cacti), or something higher-end like CiscoWorks should do what you need.
