Router CPU Load

Router CPU Load monitors the CPU load on routers. Each router is displayed as a horizontal bar combining the current load and the highest measured load. Router CPU Load also provides the ability to generate pop-up alert messages when router load exceeds a user-defined point, and the ability to print the current load for all routers.

You can add numerous routers to your Router CPU Load user interface.

To monitor CPU load:

  1. Click Bar > Add New CPU Load Bar.
  2. Enter the router IP address in the Target Router field.
  3. Select the read-only or read and write community string for the router in the Community String field.
  4. Select a poll time:
    • An average load over the last 5 minutes.
    • An average load over the last minute.
    • Real time can select a polling time from 1 to 60 seconds.
  5. Select the name to display for the monitored router; the SysName of the router, or a name you specify.
