EM01b Websensor – revisited

I’m still not 100% pleased with this little thing.
It seems to work most of the time, but I’m still seeing random points where it just won’t talk to the Nagios server. If there was a pattern that’d be one thing I could track down the cause. I know it has to be there, but the correlation to some other event on the network escapes me.

  • Have you tried sticking a cheap-o little switch onto a secondary nic of your nagios box and plugging the sensor into that? 192.168.x.x should be fine. Either that or a cross over cable. That should at least take network traffic and broadcasts out of the equation for troubleshooting purposes.

  • I haven’t tried that yet, no. That would eliminate the broadcast traffic. Perhaps that will work. I’ll try it and let you all know how it works… Now to find a half height network card. 🙂

  • @rob
    I did indeed contact support. I’m having the same problems with the second unit that I was with the first. It is being attributed to broadcast traffic on our network. I’m going to try Bryan’s suggestion and see if that improves performance at all.
