How can i view inbound and outbound traffic stats for my Juniper SRX 240?

‎02-10-2019 01:34 PM

I have been using the Juniper SRX240 router for several years now and it is frustrating that one can not view any stats regarding the network in and out of the router.

I mean people like to hype the big names in the industry a lot rather than judge by the quality and output of their product but how does this make Juniper an industry leader when a basic inbound and outbound stats or just network stats that one can view and see how the router is doing its job is no where to be found?

 

Anyways if anyone else is using the same router and is able to setup a way to monitor stats for bandwidth usage or inbound and outbound traffic please share below

 

Thanks

Hi junipersrx240,

 

First google result shared this:

 

https://www.juniper.net/documentation/en_US/junos-space-apps/network-director3.1/topics/task/operati...

 

Basically any SNMP solution can leverage the information from the SRX to provide info about the throughput. Are you looking for something different?

Did you really spend time to read my post and understand what am asking?

Am looking for a graph that shows inbound and outbound traffic from the router 

 

If someone asks me hey how much bandwidth did i use on the router this month? or hey what is 95% bandwidth usage for the week...the kind of graph that will quickly show that is what am looking for

Also network speed graph that shows the network speed in and out of the router. Those kind of stats which modern next generation firewalls come packed with but until i get no way around this i will forever leave juniper behind and move elsewhere

SRX240 is not a Juniper Next-Gen firewall and actually it was announced End-of-life on 05/30/2018 so I wouldnt demand NG-FW features:

Still it could show the information you are looking for by leveraging SNMP/jflow, and using external applications like Solarwinds:

Juniper NG-FWs now also provide on-box reporting:

You are correct that there is no way on the SRX to see stats over time.  The system is setup so you can monitor live traffic or view logs over limited periods as they roll over.  But nothing is saved and nothing is in the graphical interface for this.

 

Junos space would do this but can be expensive for small networks.  Likewise other commercial software that collects saves and graphically displays these stats via SNMP is an option.

 

For smaller limited budget networks the open source Cacti graphing tool has worked well for me in the past.  There is no license cost and it can run on a free linux distro in a virtual machine.

Hi Junipersrx240,

 

You're asking features of iPhone X while having iphone3. In order to compare with other vendors, you need to pick similar category products.

 

Thanks,
