How to monitor CISCO ASR network devices

What is a Cisco ASR router?

The Cisco ASR (Aggregation Services Router) Series, manufactured by Cisco Systems, represents a line of routers primarily designed for service provider networks. Built on a Linux microkernel operating system, these routers provide performance, scalability, and resilient network services. Their architecture allows for efficient handling of substantial network traffic, making them suitable for demanding, high-capacity network environments.

How to monitor a Cisco ASR?

ServicePilot makes it very easy to monitor a Cisco ASR. Simply configure the SNMP interface of the Cisco ASR. Then use the ServicePilot web interface to add a resource from the ServicePilot network-cisco-asr package.

The monitoring statistics gathered in this way include:

  • CPU
  • Memory and Buffer creation failure
  • Interfaces (will be automatically discovered)
