Switch Clients Throughput Test

For each client accessing the switch connected to the target Cisco Meraki, this test reports the amount of data sent and received. Using this test, administrators can identify the client that is sending/receiving the maximum amount of data.

Target of the test : A Cisco Meraki

Agent deploying the test : An external agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for each Network:Switch:Client connected to the target Cisco Meraki being monitored.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test period

How often should the test be executed

Host

The IP address of the Cisco Meraki to be monitored.

Port

The port at which the specified Host listens. By default, this will be NULL.

API Key

The eG agent collects the required metrics from the target Cisco Meraki by executing API commands using Dashboard API and pulls out critical metrics. In order to collect metrics, the eG agent should be provided with a valid API key. To know how to generate the API key, refer to Pre-requisites for Monitoring Cisco Meraki. Specify the generated API key in this text box.

By default, the target Cisco Meraki is SSL-enabled. Accordingly, the SSL flag is set to Yes by default.

Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Sent data

Indicates the rate at which data was sent during the last measurement period to this client.

KB/sec

Compare the value of this measure across clients to identify the client that is sending the maximum amount of data.

Received data

Indicates the rate at which data was received by this client during the last measurement period.

KB/sec

Compare the value of this measure to identify the client that is receiving the maximum amount of data.
