Monitor Bandwidth on Point-to-Point

Monitor Bandwidth on Point-to-Point

Monitor Bandwidth on Point-to-Point

Good afternoon Tech's, I need some assistance. I have 2 locations, NY and NJ offices connected via a 3MB Point to Point.

I am looking to monitor the available bandwidth between this point-to-point because we are looking to implement some video conference.

I have two HP ProCurve 7102dl edge routers connection both locations together. How can I track bandwidth between these locations?

Thank You in advance.  

RE: Monitor Bandwidth on Point-to-Point

the only way would be to position you analyzer between the router and the internet access device (ie modem).

Since the link is 3 Mb, you can get away with a simple 10/100 hub, but then you should make the router interface detected the duplex as half.

You can use a managable switch and mirror the port to your analyzer

Lastly would be to purchase Tap.

Good luck
