The main design goal of this plugin is to monitor one network device with one plugin. It is optimized for speed and allows to monitor large networks with hundreds of switches and routers. (v2 is successfully testet with 10000 ports graphed on 1500 cisco switches)
Server systems like unix, windows, network can also be monitored. In a plug and play manner it walks through lots of snmp mibs and stores all interface properties in a nice table. If someone changes interface properties the plugin recognizes it and displays these changes.
Any change of a cached value and also throughput values can be the reason for an alarm.
Cached values can be reseted without the use of sudo as in v1.
