configuration | Computer Science homework help


Based of your understanding of Remote Monitoring (RMON),

In a Microsoft Word document, configure a RMON and create a 3- to 4-page report addressing the following:



Assume the following scenario for configuration:


  • The company you are designing for has the Internet with three subnetworks.
  • Two of the sub-networks are located in the same building while the other sub-network is at a remote site.
  • A dedicated management station with RMON management capability is attached to the central LAN.
  • One of the sub-networks, the RMON Management Information Base (MIB), is implemented in a PC, which may be dedicated to remote monitoring or, if the traffic on the sub-network is light, may perform other duties, such as local network management or a server function.
  • The Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI) backbone is the second management station with RMON management capability, concerned with management of the networks at that site.
  • The RMON MIB functions for the token ring LAN are performed by the router that connects that LAN to the rest of the Internet.


**Discuss the types of monitoring and alarms necessary in your configuration.

**Describe where each one is housed and how it is implemented.

**Define any conditions for the alarm as necessary and describe the type of monitoring that is being implemented in each instance.
