Resolution

The cdm probe supports monitoring of connections, network traffic, to/from the server.

This was integrated from the net_traffic probe (which is no longer supported).

You must use the Admin Console or MCS.

Please refer to the following link for a full list of metrics including Network QOS:

Search for 'Network'

 



Use the latest GA version of cdm.

In MCS, all the metrics are included in the NIC Monitoring Enhanced Template.
