Pan(w)achrome stats collecting?

Hello folks,

 

We are going to be moving datacenter soon and changing our ISP.  We plan to consider a 1Gbps Internet line coming in.  Not sure of exact upload vs. download at the moment.  In preparation, I am being asked to characterize our traffic, comparison, from a speed/bitrate perspective.

 

It seems like Pan(w)achrome gives great stats, but have not figured out how to collect over time, output to .csv or something.

 

Anyone know if that is possible or example of other utility to collect this info, "easily"?

@OMatlock,

That functionality is not built into Pan(w)achrome at all. You'd be better off setting up Netflow and using that.

You should also be able to get the same info out of your NMS using what I hope would be SNMP monitoring of your router / switch interface your PA is connected into.

Thank you @Brandon_Wertz for that.

This environment did have Solarwinds installed at one point, but gone shortly before I got here (1.5 year ago).

 

I am looking into building it back up.

 

Sounds like Netflow and or SNMP. 

I know Solarwinds does both and I've been hearing a lot about Manage Engine.

 

Thank you again.
