IT/CS continuously monitors and records the amount of network traffic on key infrastructure points, both for campus and Internet connections. This information is used internally by Network Operations staff to ensure that all links are operating within acceptable limits and determine where upgrades are needed.
Our purpose for publishing these pages is not to produce an interactive real-time display for immediate diagnostics. We believe that this type of information is not appropriate for the use of first and second line of support where root cause analysis systems should be deployed to generate actionable alarms.
Rather, this information is collected and processed to reveal baselines and trends in threshold variations and are presented as high-level overviews intended for problem management and planning.
