RMON2 Groups

Figure 3-32 illustrates the RMON groups that were added when RMON2 was introduced. They include the following:

■ Protocol Directory: Provides the list of protocols that the device supports

■ Protocol Distribution: Contains traffic statistics for each supported protocol

■ Address Mapping: Contains network layer-to-MAC layer address mappings

■ Network Layer Host: Contains statistics for the network layer traffic to or from each host

■ Network Layer Matrix: Contains network layer traffic statistics for conversations between pairs of hosts

■ Application Layer Host: Contains statistics for the application layer traffic to or from each host

■ Application Layer Matrix: Contains application layer traffic statistics for conversations between pairs of hosts

■ User History Collection: Contains periodic samples of user-specified variables

■ Probe Configuration: Provides a standard way of remotely configuring probe parameters, such as trap destination and out-of-band management
