I did a demo for a large telco. They are monitoring many remote networks (over vpns) over potentially highly used lines and they were very concerned about bandwidth issues around monitoring. They are interested in numbers and calculations.
Do we have any metrics that would help answer the following questions?
- How much bandwidth could be used by monitoring just for transferring the QOS data?
- How much bandwidth is required for the hub and robot (communication between them)?
- How much bandwidth is needed to monitor Cisco UCM? (UCM contains a large amount of data)
