Through the polling settings for IP performance monitoring, you control the ICMP and SNMP performance polling of the managed network objects in your network. The polled information serves as input to IP Performance Manager‘s fault and performance analysis of interfaces and ports, processors and memory, disks and file systems, fans and power supplies, and voltage and temperature sensors.

The IP Performance Manager provides the following polling settings for IP performance monitoring:

  • Environment Polling

  • Environment Polling - External Poller

  • File System Polling

  • Performance Polling - Ports and Interfaces

  • Performance Polling - Processor and Memory

    The “Environment Polling” and “Environment Polling - External Poller” settings are mutually exclusive, which means that only one or the other (but not both) can be applied to a polling group at any given time.
