Network Device Monitoring

Network Device Monitoring


Network Device Monitoring is designed to give you visibility into your on-premise and virtual network devices, such as routers, switches, and firewalls. Automatically discover devices on any network, and quickly start collecting metrics like bandwidth utilization, volume of bytes sent, and determine whether devices are up/down.

Getting started

  1. Install the Datadog Agent.
  2. Configure the SNMP integration by either monitoring individual devices, or using device autodiscovery.
  3. View metrics collected on Datadog’s out-of-the-box dashboards:
  4. Catch issues before they arise with proactive monitoring on any SNMP metric.
