LAN/WAN Monitoring and Trending

By TylerDurden ·
I'm trying to build more statistics gathering and reporting & alerting mechanisms into my LAN/WAN environment. I want to use SNMP for most of this functionality. Any good sites out there with SNMP how-to's, strategies, etc.?

I would like to know:
> When servers/services go down
> bandwidth utilization over WAN links
> When network traffic levels reach thresholds
> I would like to be able to automate the gathering of this information and development of daily, weekly, monthly reports from this data.

Any information, suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

HP's OpenView runs on NT and will read the SNMP traps. As far as WAN monitoring, what type of WAN? For Frame Relay, Adtran and some other companies make 'probes' which are devices that sit behing the Frad or DSU and gather real time statistics whichcan be dumped into a DBF or XLS format to analyze. Check out for other monitoring options.
