EX Throughput Monitoring

‎04-22-2015 06:47 AM

Does anyone have a good (cheap-ish) recommendation for monitoring throughput on EX switches? We're currently running 1gb uplinks to switches and I'd love to have some real time stats as well as long term stats to see if/when we're hitting our 1gb max. Ideally I'm looking to make a pitch to mangagement to update to 10gb but I'll need data to support it. Also would love to know, for my own knowledge and planning, what areas of our campus are seeing the most network activity.

Cacti is awesome, free, but unfortunately not maintained to any great degree.

Also there is a real-time plug-in available.
